    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in libphp-adodb, the
    'adodb' database abstraction layer for PHP, which is embedded in
    moodle, a course management system for online learning.  The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CVE-2006-0146
    
        Andreas Sandblad discovered that improper user input sanitisation
        results in a potential remote SQL injection vulnerability enabling
        an attacker to compromise applications, access or modify data, or
        exploit vulnerabilities in the underlying database implementation.
        This requires the MySQL root password to be empty.  It is fixed by
        limiting access to the script in question.
    
    CVE-2006-0147
    
        A dynamic code evaluation vulnerability allows remote attackers to
        execute arbitrary PHP functions via the 'do' parameter.
    
    CVE-2006-0410
    
        Andy Staudacher discovered an SQL injection vulnerability due to
        insufficient input sanitising that allows remote attackers to
        execute arbitrary SQL commands.
    
    CVE-2006-0806
    
        GulfTech Security Research discovered multiple cross-site
        scripting vulnerabilities due to improper user-supplied input
        sanitisation.  Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to
        cause arbitrary scripts to be executed in the browser of an
        unsuspecting user's machine, or result in the theft of
        cookie-based authentication credentials.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain moodle packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.4.dfsg.1-3sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your moodle package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
