Package        : phpsysinfo
Vulnerability  : programming errors
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-0870 CVE-2005-3347 CVE-2005-3348
Debian Bug     : 301118

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpsysinfo, a PHP
based host information application.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems: 


    Maksymilian Arciemowicz discoverd several cross site scripting
    problems, of which not all were fixed in DSA 724.


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


    Christopher Kunz discovered that user-supplied input is used
    unsanitised, causing a HTTP Response splitting problem.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0-3woody3.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.3-4sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpsysinfo package.
