eGroupWare: XSS and SQL injection vulnerabilities — GLSA 200504-24

eGroupWare is affected by several SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.

Affected Packages

www-apps/egroupware on all architectures
Affected versions < 1.0.0.007
Unaffected versions >= 1.0.0.007

Background

eGroupWare is a suite of web-based group applications including calendar, address book, messenger and email.

Description

Multiple SQL injection and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been found in several eGroupWare modules.

Impact

An attacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerabilities to gain information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/egroupware-1.0.0.007"
