Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200508-20] phpGroupWare: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
phpGroupWare: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200508-20
(phpGroupWare: Multiple vulnerabilities)


phpGroupWare improperly validates the "mid" parameter retrieved
via a forum post. The current version of phpGroupWare also adds several
safeguards to prevent XSS issues, and disables the use of a potentially
vulnerable XML-RPC library.

Impact

A remote attacker may leverage the XML-RPC vulnerability to
execute arbitrary PHP script code. He could also create a specially
crafted request that will reveal private posts.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
