    Debian Bug     : 386519
    
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in SQL Ledger, a web
    based double-entry accounting program, which may lead to the execution
    of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2006-4244
    
        Chris Travers discovered that the session management can be tricked
        into hijacking existing sessions.
    
    CVE-2006-4731
    
        Chris Travers discovered that directory traversal vulnerabilities
        can be exploited to execute arbitrary Perl code.
    
    CVE-2006-5872
    
        It was discovered that missing input sanitising allows execution of
        arbitrary Perl code.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.4.7-2sarge1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) these problems have been
    fixed in version 2.6.21-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.21-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sql-ledger packages.

      Source archives:
