    Vulnerability  : sql injection
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-0438
    
    It was discovered that otrs2, the Open Ticket Request System, does not
    properly sanitise input data that is used on SQL queries, which might be
    used to inject arbitrary SQL to, for example, escalate privileges on a
    system that uses otrs2.
    
    The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), the problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.7-2lenny3.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), the problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), the problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.7-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your otrs2 packages.
