Debian DSA-2073-1 : mlmmj - insufficient input sanitising

medium Nessus Plugin ID 47791

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Florian Streibelt reported a directory traversal flaw in the way the Mailing List Managing Made Joyful mailing list manager processed users' requests originating from the administrator web interface without enough input validation. A remote, authenticated attacker could use these flaws to write and/or delete arbitrary files.

Solution

Upgrade the mlmmj package.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.15-1.1+lenny1.
