Summary

The remote host is missing an update to elog announced via advisory DSA 967-1. Several security problems have been found in elog, an electonic logbook to manage notes. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the following problems: CVE-2005-4439 GroundZero Security discovered that elog insufficiently checks the size of a buffer used for processing URL parameters, which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2006-0347 It was discovered that elog contains a directory traveral vulnerability in the processing of ../ sequences in URLs, which might lead to information disclosure. CVE-2006-0348 The code to write the log file contained a format string vulnerability, which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2006-0597 Overly long revision attributes might trigger a crash due to a buffer overflow. CVE-2006-0598 The code to write the log file does not enforce bounds checks properly, which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2006-0599 elog emitted different errors messages for invalid passwords and invalid users, which allows an attacker to probe for valid user names. CVE-2006-0600 An attacker could be driven into infinite redirection with a crafted fail request, which has denial of service potential. The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain elog packages.
