Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in the Horde Application Framework can allow
for arbitrary files to be overwritten and cross-site scripting attacks.

Background
==========

Horde is a web application framework written in PHP.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                   /  Vulnerable  /             Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-apps/horde                 < 3.3.5                   >= 3.3.5
  2  www-apps/horde-webmail         < 1.2.4                   >= 1.2.4
  3  www-apps/horde-groupware       < 1.2.4                   >= 1.2.4
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     3 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Horde:

* Stefan Esser of Sektion1 reported an error within the form library
  when handling image form fields (CVE-2009-3236).

* Martin Geisler and David Wharton reported that an error exists in
  the MIME viewer library when viewing unknown text parts and the
  preferences system in services/prefs.php when handling number
  preferences (CVE-2009-3237).

Impact
======

A remote authenticated attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to
overwrite arbitrary files on the server, provided that the user has
write permissions. A remote authenticated attacker could conduct
Cross-Site Scripting attacks.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Horde users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose =www-apps/horde-3.3.5

All Horde webmail users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose =www-apps/horde-webmail-1.2.4
