Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4244 CVE-2006-4731 CVE-2006-5872
Debian Bug     : 386519

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in SQL Ledger, a web
based double-entry accounting program, which may lead to the execution
of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2006-4244

    Chris Travers discovered that the session management can be tricked
    into hijacking existing sessions.

CVE-2006-4731

    Chris Travers discovered that directory traversal vulnerabilities
    can be exploited to execute arbitrary Perl code.

CVE-2006-5872

    It was discovered that missing input sanitising allows execution of
    arbitrary Perl code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.7-2sarge1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) these problems have been
fixed in version 2.6.21-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.21-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your sql-ledger packages.
