Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: phpGroupWare: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200508-20)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: August 30, 2005
Bug(s): #102379
ID: 200508-20

Synopsis

phpGroupWare is vulnerable to multiple issues ranging from information disclosure to a potential execution of arbitrary code.

Background

phpGroupWare is a multi-user groupware suite written in PHP.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/phpgroupware
Vulnerable: < 0.9.16.008
Unaffected: >= 0.9.16.008
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

phpGroupWare improperly validates the "mid" parameter retrieved via a forum post. The current version of phpGroupWare also adds several safeguards to prevent XSS issues, and disables the use of a potentially vulnerable XML-RPC library.

Impact

A remote attacker may leverage the XML-RPC vulnerability to execute arbitrary PHP script code. He could also create a specially crafted request that will reveal private posts.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All phpGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpgroupware-0.9.16.008"
