FreeBSD : Bugzilla -- Directory Traversal in importxml.pl (1d96305d-6ae6-11dd-91d5-000c29d47fd7)
High Nessus Plugin ID 33904
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionA Bugzilla Security Advisory reports :
When importing bugs using importxml.pl, the --attach_path option can be specified, pointing to the directory where attachments to import are stored. If the XML file being read by importxml.pl contains a malicious ../relative_path/to/local_file node, the script follows this relative path and attaches the local file pointed by it to the bug, making the file public. The security fix makes sure the relative path is always ignored.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
