Debian Security Advisory DSA-2030-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Nico Golde April 6th, 2010 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : mahara Vulnerability : sql injection Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no Debian bug : none CVE ID : CVE-2010-0400

It was discovered that mahara, an electronic portfolio, weblog, and resume builder is not properly escaping input when generating a unique username based on a remote user name from a single sign-on application. An attacker can use this to compromise the mahara database via crafted user names.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.4-4+lenny5.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mahara packages.
