|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Horde Application Framework: Remote code execution (GLSA 200604-02)
Date: April 04, 2006
Bug(s): #127889, #126435
The help viewer of the Horde Framework allows attackers to execute
arbitrary remote code.
The Horde Application Framework is a general-purpose web
application framework written in PHP, providing classes for handling
preferences, compression, browser detection, connection tracking, MIME
Vulnerable: < 3.1.1
Unaffected: >= 3.1.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Jan Schneider of the Horde team discovered a vulnerability in the
help viewer of the Horde Application Framework that could allow remote
code execution (CVE-2006-1491). Paul Craig reported that
"services/go.php" fails to validate the passed URL parameter correctly
An attacker could exploit the vulnerability in the help viewer to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the web server user. By
embedding a NULL character in the URL parameter, an attacker could
exploit the input validation issue in go.php to read arbitrary files.
There are no known workarounds at this time.
All Horde Application Framework users should upgrade to the latest
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/horde-3.1.1"
