Synopsis
========

phpGroupWare and eGroupWare include an XML-RPC implementation which
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP script commands.

Background
==========

phpGroupWare and eGroupWare are web based collaboration software
suites.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                /   Vulnerable   /              Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-apps/phpgroupware     < 0.9.16.006              >= 0.9.16.006
  2  www-apps/egroupware        < 1.0.0.008               >= 1.0.0.008
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

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

The XML-RPC implementations of phpGroupWare and eGroupWare fail to
sanitize input sent to the XML-RPC server using the "POST" method.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could exploit the XML-RPC vulnerability to execute
arbitrary PHP script code by sending specially crafted XML data to the
XML-RPC servers of phpGroupWare or eGroupWare.

Workaround
==========

There are no known workarounds at this time.

Resolution
==========

All phpGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest available version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-app/phpgroupware-0.9.16.006"

All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest available version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-app/egroupware-1.0.0.008"
