Debian Security Advisory DSA 1720-1                                       Martin Schulze

Package        : typo3-src
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian Bug     : 514713

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the TYPO3 web
content management framework.

Marcus Krause and Michael Stucki from the TYPO3 security team
discovered that the jumpUrl mechanism discloses secret hashes enabling
a remote attacker to bypass access control by submitting the correct
value as a URL parameter and thus being able to read the content of
arbitrary files.

Jelmer de Hen and Dmitry Dulepov discovered multiple cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities in the backend user interface allowing
remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

As it is very likely that your encryption key has been exposed we
strongly recommend to change your encyption key via the install tool
after installing the update.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.0.2+debian-8.

For the testing distribution (lenny) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.2.5-1+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.2.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your typo3 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.

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch

      Size/MD5 checksum:    77252 87ceec7498d3df3436dc0a663088d2b6

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