Package : trac
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2005-4065 CVE-2005-4644
BugTraq IDs : 15720 16198
Debian Bug : 348791

This update corrects the search feature in trac, an enhanced wiki
and issue tracking system for software development projects, which
broke with the last security update. For completeness please find
below the original advisory text:

Several vulnerabilies have been discovered in trac, an enhanced wiki
and issue tracking system for software development projects. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifie the following


Due to missing input sanitising it is possible to inject arbitrary
SQL code into the SQL statements.


A cross-site scripting vulnerability has been discovered that
allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain trac packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.1-3sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your trac package.
