Package        : jitterbug
Vulnerability  : improperly sanitised input
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0028

Steve Kemp discovered a security related problem in jitterbug, a
simple CGI based bug tracking and reporting tool.  Unfortunately not
program executions use properly sanitized input which allows an
attacker to execute arbitary commands on the server hosting the bug
database.  As mitigating factors these attacks are only available to
non-guest users, and accounts for these people must be setup by the
administrator making them "trusted".

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.6.2-4.2woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.6.2-4.5.

We recommend that you upgrade your jitterbug package.
