Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1242] DSA-1242-1 elog

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1242-1 elog

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in elog, a web-based
electronic logbook, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:
Tilman Koschnick discovered that log entry editing in HTML is vulnerable
to cross-site scripting. This update disables the vulnerable code.
Ulf Härnhammar of the Debian Security Audit Project discovered several
format string vulnerabilities in elog, which may lead to execution of
arbitrary code.
Ulf Härnhammar of the Debian Security Audit Project discovered
cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the creation of new logbook
entries.
Jayesh KS and Arun Kethipelly of OS2A discovered that elog performs
insufficient error handling in config file parsing, which may lead to
denial of service through a NULL pointer dereference.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.7+r1558-4+sarge3.
The upcoming stable distribution (etch) will no longer include elog.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.2+r1754-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your elog package.
