    Vulnerability  : Cross-site request forgery
    Problem type   : remote

    John Leitch has discovered a vulnerability in eXtplorer, a very feature
    rich web server file manager, which can be exploited by malicious people
    to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
    
    The vulnerability allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests 
    without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be 
    exploited for example, to create an administrative user account by tricking
    an logged administrator to visiting an attacker-defined web link.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.0b6+dfsg.2-1+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.0b6+dfsg.3-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.0b6+dfsg.3-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your extplorer packages.
