Vulnerability Scan Summary
Trac: File upload vulnerability
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200506-21
(Trac: File upload vulnerability)
Stefan Esser of the Hardened-PHP project discovered that Trac
fails to validate the "id" parameter when uploading attachments to the
wiki or the bug tracking system.
A remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability to upload
arbitrary files to a directory where the webserver has write access to,
possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Trac users should upgrade to the latest available version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/trac-0.8.4"
Threat Level: Medium
