Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in egroupware, a
web-based groupware suite. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

Alexander Heidenreich discovered a cross-site scripting problem in
the tree view of FUD Forum Bulletin Board Software, which is also

unconditionally in phpsyinfo, which are also present in
egroupware, and are trusted later, which could lead to the
inclusion of arbitrary files.
