Synopsis
========

phpWebSite is vulnerable to possible HTTP response splitting attacks.

Background
==========

phpWebSite is a web site content management system.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /    Vulnerable    /              Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-apps/phpwebsite      < 0.9.3_p4-r2             >= 0.9.3_p4-r2

Description
===========

Due to lack of proper input validation, phpWebSite has been found to be
vulnerable to HTTP response splitting attacks.

Impact
======

A malicious user could inject arbitrary response data, leading to
content spoofing, web cache poisoning and other cross-site scripting or
HTTP response splitting attacks. This could result in compromising the
victim's data or browser.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.9.3_p4-r2"
