Posted by Team   
RedHat Linux Updated packages for analog are available which fix a cross-site scripting problem and a denial of service problem.

                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated analog packages are available
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2002:059-13
Issue date:        2002-04-09
Updated on:        2002-09-26
Product:           Red Hat Powertools
Keywords:          analog cross-site scripting
Cross references:  
CVE Names:         CVE-2002-0166 CAN-2002-1154

1. Topic:

Updated packages for analog are available which fix a cross-site  
scripting problem and a denial of service problem.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Powertools 7.1 - alpha, i386

3. Problem description:

Analog is a web server logfile analysis program.  

Yuji Takahashi discovered a bug in analog versions prior to 5.2.2 which
allows a cross-site scripting attack when an attacker can insert arbitrary
strings into a web server logfile. Analog then performs an analysis on all
strings in the logfile and reports it. An attacker can exploit this
vulnerability, for example, by introducing arbitrary Javascript code into
an analog report produced by one user and read by a third person. 
Additionally a problem was discovered in the optional CGI front end form
interface to analog, in versions prior to 5.23.  An attacker
who has access to this program could cause the web server error log to fill.

All users of analog are advised to upgrade to the errata packages
containing analog version 5.24 which is not affected by these vulnerabilities.

4. Solution:
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. RPMs required:

Red Hat Powertools 7.1:




6. Verification:

MD5 sum                          Package Name
5e816ff01a41d588178e2971d1fb12a6 7.1/en/powertools/SRPMS/analog-5.24-1.src.rpm
b01876dce46ed92c8e5177eddef31a48 7.1/en/powertools/alpha/analog-5.24-1.alpha.rpm
015d4ea8f3bf01d441f7a3d10e9c7840 7.1/en/powertools/alpha/analog-form-5.24-1.alpha.rpm
0218cfd9eef61f3a3025dd934801be07 7.1/en/powertools/i386/analog-5.24-1.i386.rpm
70175466a734180b76ad056e83924a79 7.1/en/powertools/i386/analog-form-5.24-1.i386.rpm

These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat, Inc. for security.  Our key
is available at:

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig  

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    rpm --checksig --nogpg
