Vulnerability Assessment Details
Horde Application Framework: Remote code execution
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-02
(Horde Application Framework: Remote code execution)
Jan Schneider of the Horde team discovered a vulnerability in the
help viewer of the Horde Application Framework that could permit remote
code execution (CVE-2006-1491). Paul Craig reported that
"services/go.php" fails to validate the passed URL parameter correctly
A possible hacker could exploit the vulnerability in the help viewer to
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the web server user. By
embedding a NULL character in the URL parameter, a possible hacker could
exploit the input validation issue in go.php to read arbitrary files.
There are no known workarounds at this time.
All Horde Application Framework users should upgrade to the latest
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/horde-3.1.1"
