Synopsis
========

PHProjekt contains a vulnerability in the setup procedure allowing
remote users without admin rights to change the configuration.

Background
==========

PHProjekt is a modular groupware web application used to coordinate
group activities and share files.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package             /  Vulnerable  /                   Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-apps/phprojekt      < 4.2-r1                        >= 4.2-r1

Description
===========

Martin Muench, from it.sec, found a flaw in the setup.php file.

Impact
======

Successful exploitation of the flaw allows a remote attacker without
admin rights to make unauthorized changes to PHProjekt configuration.

Workaround
==========

As a workaround, you could replace the existing setup.php file in
PHProjekt root directory by the one provided on the PHProjekt Advisory
(see References).

Resolution
==========

All PHProjekt users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phprojekt-4.2-r1"
