Debian: New courier-authlib packages fix SQL injection Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Debian Two SQL injection vulnerabilities have beein found in courier-authlib, the courier authentification library. The MySQL database interface used insufficient escaping mechanisms when constructing SQL statements, leading to SQL injection vulnerabilities if certain charsets are used (CVE-2008-2380). A similar issue affects the PostgreSQL database interface (CVE-2008-2667).

Package        : courier-authlib
Vulnerability  : SQL injection
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-2380 CVE-2008-2667

Two SQL injection vulnerabilities have beein found in courier-authlib,
the courier authentification library.  The MySQL database interface used
insufficient escaping mechanisms when constructing SQL statements,
leading to SQL injection vulnerabilities if certain charsets are used
(CVE-2008-2380).  A similar issue affects the PostgreSQL database
interface (CVE-2008-2667).

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.58-4+etch2.

For the testing distribution (lenny) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 0.61.0-1+lenny1.

We recommend that you upgrade your courier-authlib 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 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.
