Package        : mahara
Vulnerability  : several vulnerabilities
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2009-3298 CVE-2009-3299

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in, an electronic portfolio,
weblog, and resume builder.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:


Ruslan Kabalin discovered a issue with resetting passwords, which could
lead to a privilege escalation of an institutional administrator


Sven Vetsch discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability via the
resume fields.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.4-4+lenny4.

The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain mahara.

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

We recommend that you upgrade your mahara 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

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
