Package : otrs
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2005-3893 CVE-2005-3894 CVE-2005-3895
BugTraq ID : 15537
Debian Bug : 340352

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in otrs, the Open Ticket
Request System, that can be exploited remotely. The Common
vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the following
problems:

CVE-2005-3893

Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary SQL commands and bypass authentication.

CVE-2005-3894

Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allow remote
authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

CVE-2005-3895

Internally attached text/html mails are rendered as HTML when the
queue moderator attempts to download the attachment, which allows
remote attackers to execute arbitrary web script or HTML.

the old stable distribution (woody) does not contain OTRS packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.2p01-6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.4p01-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your otrs package.
