 Package : backuppc
 Date    : April 8, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated backuppc packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in RestoreFile.pm in
 BackupPC 3.1.0, 3.2.1, and possibly other earlier versions allows
 remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the share
 parameter in a RestoreFile action to index.cgi (CVE-2011-5081).
 
 Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in View.pm in BackupPC 3.0.0,
 3.1.0, 3.2.0, 3.2.1, and possibly earlier allows remote attackers to
 inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the num parameter in a view
 action to index.cgi, related to the log file viewer (CVE-2011-4923).
 
 Also, This update package corrects/improves the definition of
 variables in config.pl, the configuration file of backuppc: the
 variables SshPath, SmbClientPath, NmbLookupPath, TarClientPath,
 TopDir. As a result, backuppc should now run with the default values
 installed by the Mageia package, modifications of config.pl should
 only be required for defining site-specific settings.
