Technical Details:
Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in sitebar, a web based bookmark manager written in PHP. The Common Vulnerabilities Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2007-5491 A directory traversal vulnerability in the translation module allows remote authenticated users to chmod arbitrary files to 0777 via .. sequences in the lang parameter. CVE-2007-5492 A static code injection vulnerability in the translation module allows a remote authenticated user to execute arbitrary PHP code via the value parameter. CVE-2007-5693 An eval injection vulnerability in the translation module allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary PHP code via the edit parameter in an upd cmd action. CVE-2007-5694 A path traversal vulnerability in the translation module allows remote authenticated users to read arbitrary files via an absolute path in the 'dir' parameter. CVE-2007-5695 An error in command.php allows remote attackers to redirect users to arbitrary web sites via the forward parameter in a Log In action. CVE-2007-5692 Multiple cross site scripting flaws allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary script or HTML fragments into several scripts. For the stable distribution (etch), these problem have been fixed in version 3.3.8-7etch1. For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.6-7.1sarge1 For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.3.8-12.1. We recommend that you upgrade your sitebar Linux Distribution Package.

The remote host is missing an update to sitebar announced via advisory DSA 1423-1.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
