Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1066] DSA-1066-1 phpbb2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1066-1 phpbb2

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

It was discovered that phpbb2, a web based bulletin board, does
insufficiently sanitise values passed to the "Font Colour 3" setting,
which might lead to the execution of injected code by admin users.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain phpbb2 packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.13+1-6sarge3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your phpbb2 package.
