Package : libphp-adodb Vulnerability : several Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE IDs : CVE-2006-0146 CVE-2006-0147 CVE-2006-0410 CVE-2006-0806 BugTraq IDs : 16187 16364 16720 Debian Bugs : 349985 358872

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in libphp-adodb, the 'adodb' database abstraction layer for PHP. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


Andreas Sandblad discovered that improper user input sanitisation
results in a potential remote SQL injection vulnerability enabling
an attacker to compromise applications, access or modify data, or
exploit vulnerabilities in the underlying database implementation.
This requires the MySQL root password to be empty.  It is fixed by
limiting access to the script in question.


A dynamic code evaluation vulnerability allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary PHP functions via the 'do' parameter.


Andy Staudacher discovered an SQL injection vulnerability due to
insufficient input sanitising that allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary SQL commands.


GulfTech Security Research discovered multiple cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities due to improper user-supplied input
sanitisation.  Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to
cause arbitrary scripts to be executed in the browser of an
unsuspecting user's machine, or result in the theft of
cookie-based authentication credentials.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.51-1.2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 4.52-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 4.72-0.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libphp-adodb package.
