Fedora 8 : fedora-ds-admin-1.1.4-1.fc8 (2008-3220)

High Nessus Plugin ID 32037


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This release addresses two security vulerabilities in the package: - shell command injection in CGI replication monitor (CVE-2008-0892) - unrestricted access to CGI scripts (CVE-2008-0893) Fix Description:
Remove ScriptAlias for bin/admin/admin/bin - do not use that directory for CGI URIs - use only protected URIs for CGIs requiring authentication Remove most CGI parameters from repl-monitor-cgi.pl - user must supply replmon.conf in the admin server config directory instead of passing in this pathname - repl-monitor-cgi.pl does not use system to call repl-monitor.pl, it 'includes' that script (using perl import).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected fedora-ds-admin package.
