Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA420] DSA-420-1 jitterbug

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-420-1 jitterbug

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Steve Kemp discovered a security related problem in jitterbug, a
simple CGI based bug tracking and reporting tool. Unfortunately the
program executions do not properly sanitize input, which permits an
attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the server hosting the bug
database. As mitigating factors these attacks are only available to
non-guest users, and accounts for these people must be setup by the
administrator making them "trusted".
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.6.2-4.2woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.6.2-4.5.
We recommend that you upgrade your jitterbug package.
