GLSA-200805-04 : eGroupWare: Multiple vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 32152


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


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.


All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/egroupware-1.4.004'
