Package        : geneweb
Vulnerability  : information exposure
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1390

A security issue has been discovered by Daniel de Rauglaudre, upstream
author of geneweb, a genealogical software with web interface.  It
runs as a daemon on port 2317 by default.  Paths are not properly
sanitized, so a carefully crafted URL lead geneweb to read and display
arbitrary files of the system it runs on.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 4.06-2.

The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been
fixed in version 4.09-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your geneweb package.

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
footer to the proper configuration.
