 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:193

 Package : kolab-server
 Date    : September 13, 2008
 Affected: Corporate 3.0

 Problem Description:

 Gavin McCullagh of Griffith College Dublin reported an issue in Kolab
 v1 where user passwords were being recorded in the Apache log files
 due to Kolab using HTTP GET requests rather than HTTP POST requests.
 This would allow any users with access to the Apache log files to
 harvest user passwords and possibly other sensitive data.
 The patch to fix this problem also corrects and issue where
 non-alphanumeric characters in passwords, set via the Kolab web
 interface, did not work.
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
 Many thanks to Gavin McCullagh for his help in writing the patch and
 testing the fix.
 As well, to scrub existing log files to remove existing stored
 passwords, the following sed command can be used:
   sed -i
