Description


Debian Security Advisory DSA 328-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Matt Zimmerman June 19th, 2003 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : webfs Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Id : CAN-2003-0445

webfs, a lightweight HTTP server for static content, contains a buffer overflow whereby a long Request-URI in an HTTP request could cause arbitrary code to be executed.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.17.1.

The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a webfs package.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your webfs package.
