Debian Security Advisory                                        security@debian.org

Package: boa
Vulnerability: exposes contents of local files
Debian-specific: no
Vulnerable: yes
In versions of boa before 0.94.8.3, it is possible to access files outside of the server's document root by the use of properly constructed URL requests.

This problem is fixed in version 0.94.8.3-1, uploaded to Debian's unstable distribution on October 3, 2000. Fixed packages are also available in proposed-updates and will be included in the next revision of Debian/2.2
(potato).

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink


Slink contains Boa version 0.93.15. This version is no longer supported; we recommend that slink users upgrade to potato, or recompile the current Boa packages on their slink systems.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (stable) alias potato


Fixes are currently available for Alpha, Intel ia32, Motorola 680x0, PowerPC and the Sun Sparc architectures, from the proposed-updates archive and from these URLs:
