Description

Updated backuppc packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in RestoreFile.pm in BackupPC 3.1.0, 3.2.1, and possibly other earlier versions allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the share parameter in a RestoreFile action to index.cgi (CVE-2011-5081).

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in View.pm in BackupPC 3.0.0, 3.1.0, 3.2.0, 3.2.1, and possibly earlier allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the num parameter in a view action to index.cgi, related to the log file viewer (CVE-2011-4923).

Also, This update package corrects/improves the definition of variables in config.pl, the configuration file of backuppc: the variables SshPath, SmbClientPath, NmbLookupPath, TarClientPath, TopDir. As a result, backuppc should now run with the default values installed by the Mageia package, modifications of config.pl should only be required for defining site-specific settings.
