phpCollab is a web-enabled groupware and project management software
written in PHP. It uses SQL-based database backends.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in phpCollab:
<li>rgod reported that data sent to general/sendpassword.php via the
loginForm parameter is not properly sanitized before being used in an
SQL statement (CVE-2006-1495).</li>
<li>Christian Hoffmann of Gentoo
Security discovered multiple vulnerabilities where input is
insufficiently sanitized before being used in an SQL statement, for
instance in general/login.php via the loginForm parameter.
<li>Christian Hoffmann also found out that the
variable $SSL_CLIENT_CERT in general/login.php is not properly
sanitized before being used in a shell command. (CVE-2008-4304).</li>
<li>User-supplied data to installation/setup.php is not checked before
being written to include/settings.php which is executed later. This
issue was reported by Christian Hoffmann as well (CVE-2008-4305).</li>
<impact type="high">
These vulnerabilities enable remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL
statements and PHP code. NOTE: Some of the SQL injection
vulnerabilities require the php.ini option "magic_quotes_gpc" to be
disabled. Furthermore, an attacker might be able to execute arbitrary
shell commands if "register_globals" is enabled, "magic_quotes_gpc" is
disabled, the PHP OpenSSL extension is not installed or loaded and the
file "installation/setup.php" has not been deleted after installation.
There is no known workaround at this time.
phpCollab has been removed from the Portage tree. We recommend that
users unmerge phpCollab:
# emerge --unmerge &quot;www-apps/phpcollab&quot;</code>
