Debian: New smarty packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Smarty, a PHP templating engine. The _expand_quoted_text function allows for certain restrictions in templates, like function calling and PHP execution, to be bypassed. The smarty_function_math function allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the equation attribute of the math function. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Smarty, a PHP
templating engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2008-4810

 The _expand_quoted_text function allows for certain restrictions in
 templates, like function calling and PHP execution, to be bypassed.

CVE-2009-1669

 The smarty_function_math function allows context-dependent attackers
 to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the equation
 attribute of the math function.

For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 2.6.14-1etch2.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.6.20-1.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your smarty package.
