Package        : typo3
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian Bug     : 485814

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the
TYPO3 content management framework.

Because of a not sufficiently secure default value of the TYPO3
configuration variable fileDenyPattern, authenticated backend users
could upload files that allowed to execute arbitrary code as the
webserver user.

User input processed by fe_adminlib.inc is not being properly filtered
to prevent Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks, which is exposed when
specific plugins are in use.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.0.2+debian-5.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.1.7-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your typo3 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.
