Debian Updated package.

Debian Security Advisory DSA 798-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                              Michael Stone

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : webcalendar
Vulnerability  : remote code execution
Problem-Type   : input validation
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2717

A trivially-exploitable bug was discovered in webcalendar that
allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the HTTP daemon on a system running a vulnerable version.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the webcalendar
package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.45-4sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed
shortly.

We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package immediately.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
