Package        : ldap-account-manager (0.4.9-2sarge1)
Vulnerability  : multiple
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2006-7191 CVE-2007-1840
Debian Bug     : 415379

Two vulnerabilities have been identified in the version of
ldap-account-manager shipped with Debian 3.1 (sarge).

An untrusted PATH vulnerability could allow a local attacker to execute
arbitrary code with elevated privileges by providing a malicious rm
executable and specifying a PATH environment variable referencing this

Improper escaping of HTML content could allow an attacker to execute a
cross-site scripting attack (XSS) and execute arbitrary code in the
victim's browser in the security context of the affected web site.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.9-2sarge1.  Newer versions of Debian (etch, lenny, and sid),
are not affected.

We recommend that you upgrade your ldap-account-manager 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.
