|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: MLDonkey: Information disclosure (GLSA 200903-36)
Date: March 23, 2009
A vulnerability in the MLDonkey web interface allows remote attackers to disclose arbitrary files.
MLDonkey is a multi-network P2P application written in Ocaml, coming with its own Gtk GUI, web and telnet interface.
Vulnerable: < 3.0.0
Unaffected: >= 3.0.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
Michael Peselnik reported that src/utils/lib/url.ml in the web interface of MLDonkey does not handle file names with leading double slashes properly.
A remote attacker could gain access to arbitrary files readable by the user running the application.
Disable the web interface or restrict access to it.
All MLDonkey users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-p2p/mldonkey-3.0.0"
