Package        : otrs
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-3893 CVE-2005-3894 CVE-2005-3895
BugTraq ID     : 15537
Debian Bug     : 340352

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in otrs, the Open Ticket
Request System, that can be exploited remotely.  The Common
vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the following


    Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to
    execute arbitrary SQL commands and bypass authentication.


    Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allow remote
    authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.


    Internally attached text/html mails are rendered as HTML when the
    queue moderator attempts to download the attachment, which allows
    remote attackers to execute arbitrary web script or HTML.

the old stable distribution (woody) does not contain OTRS packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.2p01-6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.4p01-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your otrs package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you

        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

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
