    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Debian Bug     : 631437 661064
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Movable Type, a blogging
    system:
    
    Under certain circumstances, a user who has "Create Entries" or
    "Manage Blog" permissions may be able to read known files on the local
    file system.
    
    The file management system contains shell command injection
    vulnerabilities, the most serious of which may lead to arbitrary OS
    command execution by a user who has a permission to sign-in to the
    admin script and also has a permission to upload files.
    
    Session hijack and cross-site request forgery vulnerabilities exist in
    the commenting and the community script. A remote attacker could
    hijack the user session or could execute arbitrary script code on
    victim's browser under the certain circumstances.
    
    Templates which do not escape variable properly and mt-wizard.cgi
    contain cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 4.3.8+dfsg-0+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 5.1.3+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your movabletype-opensource packages.
