    Package        : elog
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5063 CVE-2006-5790 CVE-2006-5791 CVE-2006-6318
    
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in elog, a web-based
    electronic logbook, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CVE-2006-5063
    
        Tilman Koschnick discovered that log entry editing in HTML is vulnerable
        to cross-site scripting. This update disables the vulnerable code.
    
    CVE-2006-5790
    
        Ulf Harnhammar of the Debian Security Audit Project discovered several
        format string vulnerabilities in elog, which may lead to execution of
        arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2006-5791
    
        Ulf Harnhammar of the Debian Security Audit Project discovered 
        cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the creation of new logbook
        entries.
    
    CVE-2006-6318
    
        Jayesh KS and Arun Kethipelly of OS2A discovered that elog performs
        insufficient error handling in config file parsing, which may lead to
        denial of service through a NULL pointer dereference.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.5.7+r1558-4+sarge3.
    
    The upcoming stable distribution (etch) will no longer include elog.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.2+r1754-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your elog package.
