high Nessus Plugin ID 21195


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


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-02 (Horde Application Framework: Remote code execution)

Jan Schneider of the Horde team discovered a vulnerability in the help viewer of the Horde Application Framework that could allow remote code execution (CVE-2006-1491). Paul Craig reported that 'services/go.php' fails to validate the passed URL parameter correctly (CVE-2006-1260).
Impact :

An attacker could exploit the vulnerability in the help viewer to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the web server user. By embedding a NULL character in the URL parameter, an attacker could exploit the input validation issue in go.php to read arbitrary files.
Workaround :

There are no known workarounds at this time.


All Horde Application Framework users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/horde-3.1.1'
