Debian: New courier-authlib packages fix regression 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).

Debian Security Advisory DSA-1688-2                                   Steffen Joeris
December 22, 2008           
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

The update of courier-authlib in DSA 1688-1 caused a regression with
setups that do not use mail addresses for authentification.  This update
fixes this regression. For reference, the full advisory text is below.

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+etch3.

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.
