GLSA-200805-21 : Roundup: Permission bypass
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 32450
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200805-21 (Roundup: Permission bypass)
Philipp Gortan reported that the xml-rpc server in Roundup does not check property permissions (CVE-2008-1475). Furthermore, Roland Meister discovered multiple vulnerabilities caused by unspecified errors, some of which may be related to cross-site scripting (CVE-2008-1474).
A remote attacker could possibly exploit the first vulnerability to edit or view restricted properties via the list(), display(), and set() methods. The impact and attack vectors of the second vulnerability are unknown.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Roundup users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/roundup-1.4.4-r1'
