Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200805-04
(eGroupWare: Multiple vulnerabilities)

A vulnerability has been reported in FCKEditor due to the way that file
uploads are handled in the file
editor/filemanager/upload/php/upload.php when a filename has multiple
file extensions (CVE-2008-2041). Another vulnerability exists in the
_bad_protocol_once() function in the file
phpgwapi/inc/, which allows remote attackers to
bypass HTML filtering (CVE-2008-1502).

Impact :

The first vulnerability can be exploited to upload malicious files and
execute arbitrary PHP code provided that a directory is writable by the
webserver. The second vulnerability can be exploited by remote
attackers via a specially crafted URL in order to conduct cross-site
scripting attacks.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
