<p>
Jan Schneider of the Horde team discovered a vulnerability in the
help viewer of the Horde Application Framework that could allow remote
code execution (CVE-2006-1491). Paul Craig reported that
"services/go.php" fails to validate the passed URL parameter correctly
(CVE-2006-1260).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
An attacker could exploit the vulnerability in the help viewer to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the web server user. By
embedding a NULL character in the URL parameter, an attacker could
exploit the input validation issue in go.php to read arbitrary files.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There are no known workarounds at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Horde Application Framework users should upgrade to the latest
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/horde-3.1.1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
