Package        : trac
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3695

Felix Wiemann discovered that trac, an enhanced Wiki and issue
tracking system for software development projects, can be used to
disclose arbitrary local files.  To fix this problem, python-docutils
needs to be updated as well.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.1-3sarge5 of trac and version 0.3.7-2sarge1 of
python-docutils.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your trac and python-docutils packages.


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.
