[SECURITY] [DSA 1919-2] New smarty packages fix regression

Package : smarty
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-4810 CVE-2009-1669
Debian Bug : 504328 529810

A regression was found in the patch applied in DSA 1919-1 to smarty,
which caused compilation failures on some specific templates. This
update corrects the fix. For reference, the full advisory text below.

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Smarty, a PHP
templating engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2008-4810

The _expand_quoted_text function allows for certain restrictions in
templates, like function calling and PHP execution, to be bypassed.

CVE-2009-1669

The smarty_function_math function allows context-dependent attackers
to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the equation
attribute of the math function.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.20-1.3.

The testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid) are not affected
by this regression.

We recommend that you upgrade your smarty package.


Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update

[SECURITY] [DSA 2092-1] New lxr-cvs packages fix cross-site scripting
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-2092-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Sébastien Delafond
Aug 17th, 2010 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : lxr-cvs
Vulnerability : missing input sanitizing
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CVE-2010-1625 CVE-2010-1738 CVE-2010-1448 CVE-2009-4497
Debian Bugs : 588137 585412 588036 575745

Dan Rosenberg discovered that in lxr-cvs, a code-indexing tool with a
web frontend, not enough sanitation of user input is performed; an
attacker can take advantage of this and pass script code in order to
perform cross-site scripting attacks.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.5+cvs20071020-1+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.5+cvs20071020-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your lxr-cvs packages.
