Synopsis
=======

eGroupWare is affected by several SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.

Background
=========

eGroupWare is a suite of web-based group applications including calendar, address book, messenger and email.

Affected packages
================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 www-apps/egroupware lt; 1.0.0.007 gt;= 1.0.0.007

Description
==========

Multiple SQL injection and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been found in several eGroupWare modules.

Impact
=====

An attacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerabilites to gain information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

Workaround
=========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========

All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "gt;=www-apps/egroupware-1.0.0.007"
