- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 265-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Rémi 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.
