    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-5491
       A directory traversal vulnerability in the translation module allows
       remote authenticated users to chmod arbitrary files to 0777 via ".."
       sequences in the lang parameter.
    
    CVE-2007-5492
       A static code injection vulnerability in the translation module allows
       a remote authenticated user to execute arbitrary PHP code via the value
       parameter.
    
    CVE-2007-5693
       An eval injection vulnerability in the translation module allows
       remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary PHP code via the
       edit parameter in an upd cmd action.
    
    CVE-2007-5694
       A path traversal vulnerability in the translation module allows
       remote authenticated users to read arbitrary files via an absolute
       path in the 'dir' parameter.
    
    CVE-2007-5695
       An error in command.php allows remote attackers to redirect users
       to arbitrary web sites via the forward parameter in a Log In action.
    
    CVE-2007-5692
       Multiple cross site scripting flaws allow remote attackers to inject
       arbitrary script or HTML fragments into several scripts.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problem have been fixed in version
    3.3.8-7etch1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.2.6-7.1sarge1
