Debian Security Advisory DSA 893-1                                        Martin Schulze
November 14th, 2005

Package        : acidlab
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3325
CERT advisory  : 
BugTraq ID     : 15199
Debian Bug     : 335998 336788

Remco Verhoef has discovered a vulnerability in acidlab, Analysis
Console for Intrusion Databases, and in acidbase, Basic Analysis and
Security Engine, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct
SQL injection attacks.

The maintainers of Analysis Console for Intrusion Databases (ACID) in Debian,
of which BASE is a fork off, after a security audit of both BASE and ACID
have determined that the flaw found not only affected the base_qry_main.php (in
BASE) or acid_qry_main.php (in ACID) component but was also found in other
elements of the consoles due to improper parameter validation and filtering.

All the SQL injection bugs and Cross Site Scripting bugs found have been
fixed in the Debian package, closing all the different attack vendors detected.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.6b20-2.1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.6b20-10.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.6b20-13 and in version 1.2.1-1 of acidbase.

We recommend that you upgrade your acidlab and acidbase package.

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

wget url
        will fetch the file for you

sources.list as given below:

apt-get update

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