Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Stefan Esser discovered an input validation flaw within Trac, a wiki
and issue tracking system, that allows download/upload of files and
therefore can lead to remote code execution in some configurations.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the trac package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.1-3sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your trac 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.
