    Package        : phpsysinfo
    Vulnerability  : directory traversal
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0536
    
    Albert Puigsech Galicia <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> reported that phpsysinfo,
    a web-based program to display status information about the system,
    contains two vulnerabilities which could allow local files to be read,
    or arbitrary PHP code to be executed, under the privileges of the web
    server process (usually www-data).  These vulnerabilities require
    access to a writable directory on the system in order to be exploited.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0-3woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    See Debian bug #200543.
    
    We recommend that you update your phpsysinfo package.
