Yoshihiro Ishikawa discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool
(SWAT) was vulnerable to cross-site request forgeries (CSRF). If a
Samba administrator were tricked into clicking a link on a specially
crafted web page, an attacker could trigger commands that could modify
the Samba configuration. (CVE-2011-2522)
Nobuhiro Tsuji discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool
(SWAT) did not properly sanitize its input when processing password
change requests, resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerabilities. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user
were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server
request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents,
or steal confidential data, within the same domain. (CVE-2011-2694).
Update the affected swat package.
