Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 200504-24
eGroupWare is affected by several SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.
eGroupWare is a suite of web-based group applications including calendar, address book, messenger and email.
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
1 www-apps/egroupware < 1.0.0.007 >= 1.0.0.007
Multiple SQL injection and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been found in several eGroupWare modules.
An attacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerabilites to gain information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/egroupware-1.0.0.007"

Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2005-0015
Package name: postgresql
PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system (DBMS) that supports almost all SQL constructs (including transactions, subselects and user-defined types and functions). The postgresql package includes the client programs and libraries that you'll need to access a PostgreSQL DBMS server. These PostgreSQL client programs are programs that directly manipulate the internal structure of PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server. These client programs can be located on the same machine with the PostgreSQL server, or may be on a remote machine which accesses a PostgreSQL server over a network connection. This package contains the docs in HTML for the whole package, as well as command-line utilities for managing PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org/) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0247 to this issue.
