Package        : sql-ledger
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:


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


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


    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.

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.

  its next update.
