Security bulletin

Patch available for Breeze 5 Licensed Server Information Disclosure

   Release date: October 10, 2006

   Vulnerability identifier: APSB06-16

   CVE number: CVE-2006-5200

   Platform: All Platforms

Affected software versions

   Breeze 5.0 Licensed Server and Breeze 5.1 Licensed Server. NOTE:
   Breeze Hosted customers and Breeze 4.x customers are not affected by
   this issue.

Summary

   Due to an issue with URL parsing, a malicious user could retrieve the
   contents of an arbitrary file from the drive on which Breeze is
   installed.

Solution

   Adobe recommends Breeze users install the patch provided, using the
   instructions below.
    1. Ensure that you have Breeze 5.1 SP2 (r. 168) installed. For more
       information on updating to Breeze 5.1 SP2 please see the Breeze
       Updates page. To check whether Breeze 5.1 SP2 is already
       installed, go to http://(your server)/version.txt, and verify that
       the text matches the following:
          + 5.1,168
          + Breeze 5.1 r. 168/c. 202261/b. Mon Feb 20 10:21:00 2006
          + Presenter r. 269
          + FCS r. QuickSilver Serv_2_0_r190
          + enterprise installer: Mon Feb 20 14:37:21 2006
          + Log in as usual using your password.
            If your version.txt is not identical to that above, you must
            contact Breeze support before proceeding with the upgrade.
            Proceeding with the upgrade against a different version of
            Breeze may prevent your Breeze installation from working.
    2. Download the patch file.
    3. Stop all Breeze services.
    4. Backup your existing breeze\appserv and breeze\comserv
       directories.
    5. Using a tool such as Query Analyzer, add this index to your Breeze
       database. Contact Breeze support for assistance if you are using
       the embedded Breeze database, or if you are not familiar with
       Query Analyzer:
       CREATE INDEX PPS_TRANSCRIPTS_TICKETS ON PPS_TRANSCRIPTS (TICKET);
    6. Delete the entire directory: breeze\appserv\lib\patch
    7. Copy the enclosed Breeze_51SP2_updater.zip into your \breeze
       directory into your \breeze directory
    8. Unzip Breeze_51SP2_updater.zip in place (if using Winzip, use
       "extract to here" option), being sure to overwrite files when
       prompted. If any file is locked, then disable all Breeze services,
       reboot the server and try again; all files must overwrite
       successfully. Be sure to re-enable the services once the process
       is complete.
    9. Restart Breeze services
   10. Verify http://(your server)/version.txt matches the following:
          + 5.1,172
          + Breeze 5.1 r. 172a/c. 244132/b. Tue Oct 03 20:06:48 2006
            (BEET patch 59)
          + Presenter r. 269
          + FCS r. QuickSilver Serv_2_0_r207
          + patch: breeze_510_r172a_bug_173630.jar (bugs 173630, 173668)
          + patch: breeze_510_172a_bug_172161.jar (bug 172161)
          + patch: breeze_510_r172a_bug_167213.jar (bug 167213)
          + patch: breeze_params_patch.jar (bug 174065)

          + patch: de.xml, fr.xml, ko.xml, ja.xml (bug 175336)
          + patch: breeze_510_r172a_revert_bug_131216.jar (rolling back
            bug 131216 fix, fix for bug 173287)
          + patch: breeze_510_172a_bug_179078.jar (bug 179078)
          + patch: breeze_510_r172a_bug_138998.jar (bug 138998)
          + patch: breeze_510_r172a_bug_177741.jar, events/feature.xml
            (bug 177741)
          + patch: breeze_510_r172a_bug_180759.jar (bug 180759)

            184182)
