    Package        : horde3
    Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitization
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Debian bug     : #547318
    CVE ID         : CVE-2009-3236
    
    Stefan Esser discovered that Horde, a web application framework providing
    classes for dealing with preferences, compression, browser detection,
    connection tracking, MIME, and more, is insufficiently validating and
    escaping user provided input.  The Horde_Form_Type_image form element
    allows to reuse a temporary filename on reuploads which are stored in a
    hidden HTML field and then trusted without prior validation.  An attacker
    can use this to overwrite arbitrary files on the system or to upload PHP
    code and thus execute arbitrary code with the rights of the webserver.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.3-4etch6.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2.2+debian0-2+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.5+debian0-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.5+debian0-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 packages.
