Debian Security Advisory DSA 942-1                     security@debian.org

Package        : albatross
Vulnerability  : design error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0044

A design error has been discovered in the Albatross web application
toolkit that causes user supplied data to be used as part of template
execution and hence arbitrary code execution.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain albatross packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.20-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.33-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your albatross package.


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.
