Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1056] DSA-1056-1 webcalendar

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1056-1 webcalendar

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

David Maciejak noticed that webcalendar, a PHP-based multi-user
calendar, returns different error messages on login attempts for an
invalid password and a non-existing user, permiting remote attackers to
gain information about valid usernames.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a webcalendar package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.45-4sarge4.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package.
