Package        : mailreader
Vulnerability  : directory traversal
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2002-1581

A directory traversal vulnerability was discovered in mailreader
whereby remote attackers could view arbitrary files with the
privileges of the nph-mr.cgi process (by default, www-data) via
relative paths and a null byte in the configLanguage parameter.

For the current stable distribution (woody), this problem has been
fixed in version 2.3.29-5woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your mailreader package.

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.
