                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           htdig
Date:                   November 1st, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:083

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A problem was discovered in the ht://Dig web indexing and searching
 program.  Nergal reported a vulnerability in htsearch that allows a
 remote user to pass the -c parameter, to use a specific config file, 
 to the htsearch program when running as a CGI.  A malicious user could
 point to a file like /dev/zero and force the CGI to stall until it
 times out.  Repeated attacks could result in a DoS.  As well, if the
 user has write permission on the server and can create a file with
 certain entries, they can point the server to it and retrieve any file
 readable by the webserver UID.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Mandrake Linux 8.0, look for it in "updates/8.0/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
