    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.
