Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-0870 CVE-2005-3347 CVE-2005-3348
Debian Bug : 301118

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpsysinfo, a PHP
based host information application. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2005-0870

Maksymilian Arciemowicz discoverd several cross site scripting
problems, of which not all were fixed in DSA 724.

CVE-2005-3347

Christopher Kunz discovered that local variables get overwritten
unconditionally and are trusted later, which could lead to the
inclusion of arbitrary files.

CVE-2005-3348

Christopher Kunz discovered that user-supplied input is used
unsanitised, causing a HTTP Response splitting problem.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0-3woody3.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.3-4sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpsysinfo package.
