Debian Security Advisory DSA 265-1 [email protected] Martin Schulze
March 21st, 2003
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : bonsai
Vulnerability : several
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0152 CAN-2003-0153 CAN-2003-0154 CAN-2003-0155

RĂ©mi Perrot fixed several security related bugs in the bonsai, the
Mozilla CVS query tool by web interface. Vulnerabilities include
arbitrary code execution, cross-site scripting and access to
configuration parameters. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

* CAN-2003-0152 - Remote execution of arbitrary commands as www-data

* CAN-2003-0153 - Absolute path disclosure

* CAN-2003-0154 - Cross site scriptiong attacks

* CAN-2003-0155 - Unauthenticated access to parameters page

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3+cvs20020224-1woody1.

The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected since it doesn't
contain bonsai.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3+cvs20030317-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your bonsai package.
