[GLSA-200604-02] Horde Application Framework: Remote code execution

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
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
(CVE-2006-1260).

Impact

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.

Workaround

There are no known workarounds at this time.
