    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE IDs        : CVE-2006-1062 CVE-2006-1063 CVE-2006-1064
    
    Several security related problems have been discovered in lurker, an
    archive tool for mailing lists with integrated search engine.  The
    Common Vulnerability and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CVE-2006-1062
    
        Lurker's mechanism for specifying configuration files was
        vulnerable to being overridden.  As lurker includes sections of
        unparsed config files in its output, an attacker could manipulate
        lurker into reading any file readable by the www-data user.
    
    CVE-2006-1063
    
        It is possible for a remote attacker to create or overwrite files
        in any writable directory that is named "mbox".
    
    CVE-2006-1064
    
        Missing input sanitising allows an attacker to inject arbitrary
        web script or HTML.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain lurker packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2-5sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lurker package.
