Debian Security Advisory DSA-1882-1                    security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                                 Nico Golde
September 9th, 2009                     http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : xapian-omega
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitization
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-2947

It was discovered that xapian-omega, a CGI interface for searching xapian
databases, is not properly escaping user supplied input when printing
exceptions.  An attacker can use this to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks via crafted search queries resulting in an exception and steal
potentially sensitive data from web applications running on the same domain
or embedding the search engine into a website.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.9-1+etch1.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.7-3+lenny1.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, this problem
will be fixed soon.


We recommend that you upgrade your xapian-omega 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.
