FreeBSD : joomla -- multiple vulnerabilities (8d10038e-515c-11df-83fb-0015587e2cc1)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Joomla! reported the following vulnerabilities :

If a user entered a URL with a negative query limit or offset, a PHP
notice would display revealing information about the system..

The migration script in the Joomla! installer does not check the file
type being uploaded. If the installation application is present, an
attacker could use it to upload malicious files to a server.

Session id doesn't get modified when user logs in. A remote site may
be able to forward a visitor to the Joomla! site and set a specific
cookie. If the user then logs in, the remote site can use that cookie
to authenticate as that user.

When a user requests a password reset, the reset tokens were stored in
plain text in the database. While this is not a vulnerability in
itself, it allows user accounts to be compromised if there is an
extension on the site with a SQL injection vulnerability.
