Debian Bug     : 301118

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in egroupware, a
web-based groupware suite.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:


    Maksymilian Arciemowicz discoverd several cross site scripting
    problems in phpsysinfo, which are also present in the imported
    version in egroupware and of which not all were fixed in DSA 724.


    Alexander Heidenreich discovered a cross-site scripting problem in
    the tree view of FUD Forum Bulletin Board Software, which is also
    present in egroupwre and allows remote attackers to read private
    posts via a modified mid parameter.


    Christopher Kunz discovered that local variables get overwritten
    unconditionally in phpsyinfo, which are also present in
    egroupware, and are trusted later, which could lead to the
    inclusion of arbitrary files.


    Christopher Kunz discovered that user-supplied input is used
    unsanitised in phpsyinfo and imported in egroupware, causing a
    HTTP Response splitting problem.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain egroupware packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your egroupware packages.
