[DSA223] DSA-223-1 geneweb Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
A security issue has been discovered by Daniel de Rauglaudre, upstream
author of geneweb, a genealogical software with web interface. It
runs as a daemon on port 2317 by default. Paths are not properly
sanitized, so a carefully crafted URL lead geneweb to read and display
arbitrary files of the system it runs on.
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 4.06-2.
The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been
fixed in version 4.09-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your geneweb package.
