Package        : phpldapadmin
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2016
BugTraq ID     : 17643
Debian Bug     : 365313

Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
phpLDAPadmin, a web based interface for administering LDAP servers,
tha allows  remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.5-3sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.8.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin 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 at the end of this advisory:

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.

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
