Package: boa
Vulnerability: exposes contents of local files
Debian-specific: no
Vulnerable: yes

In versions of boa before 0.94.8.3, it is possible to access files outside
of the server's document root by the use of properly constructed URL
requests.

This problem is fixed in version 0.94.8.3-1, uploaded to Debian's unstable
distribution on October 3, 2000.  Fixed packages are also available in
proposed-updates and will be included in the next revision of Debian/2.2
(potato).

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- --------------------------------

  Slink contains Boa version 0.93.15.  This version is no longer supported;
  we recommend that slink users upgrade to potato, or recompile the current
  Boa packages on their slink systems.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (stable) alias potato
- ------------------------------------------

  Fixes are currently available for Alpha, Intel ia32, Motorola 680x0,
  PowerPC and the Sun Sparc architectures, from the proposed-updates archive
  and from these URLs:
