Debian Security Advisory DSA-2335-1 firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Nico Golde November 5th, 2011 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
Package : man2hhtml Vulnerability : missing input sanitization Problem type : remote Debian-specific: yes CVE ID : CVE-2011-2770
Tim Starling discovered that the Debian-native CGI wrapper for man2html, a program to convert UNIX man pages to HTML, is not properly escaping user-supplied input when displaying various error messages. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6f-3+lenny1.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6f+repack-1+squeeze1.
For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6g-6.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6g-6.
We recommend that you upgrade your man2html packages.
