LDAP servers, doesn't sanitize an internal variable, which allows remote
attackers to include and execute arbitrary local files.


The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version
1.1.0.5-6+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
1.1.0.7-1.1


We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
