Package        : mapserver
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug     : none
CVE ID         : CVE-2010-2539 CVE-2010-2540

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in mapserver, a CGI-based
web framework to publish spatial data and interactive mapping applications.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following


  A stack-based buffer overflow in the msTmpFile function might lead to
  arbitrary code execution under some conditions.


  It was discovered that the CGI debug command-line arguments which are
  enabled by default are insecure and may allow a remote attacker to
  execute arbitrary code. Therefore they have been disabled by default.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.0.3-3+lenny5.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.6.4-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.6.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mapserver packages.

Upgrade instructions
