Package        : www-sql
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0455

Ulf Härnhammar discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in www-sql,
a CGI program which enables the creation of dynamic web pages by
embedding SQL statements in HTML.  By exploiting this
vulnerability, a local user could cause the execution of arbitrary
code by creating a web page and processing it with www-sql.

For the current stable distribution (woody), this problem has been
fixed in version 0.5.7-17woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your www-sql package.

Upgrade Instructions
- - --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
