Debian Security Advisory DSA 1096-1                    security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

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

Package        : webcalendar
Vulnerability  : uninitialised variable
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2762

A vulnerability has been discovered in webcalendar, a PHP-based
multi-user calendar, that allows a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary PHP code when register_globals is turned on.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.45-4sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.4-1

We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar 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.
