Debian: New trac packages fix cross-site request forgery

It was discovered that Trac, a wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects, performs insufficient validation against cross-site request forgery, which might lead to an attacker being able to perform manipulation of a Trac site with the privileges of the attacked Trac user. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

Vulnerability  : cross-site request forgery

Debian-specific: no

It was discovered that Trac, a wiki and issue tracking system for
software development projects, performs insufficient validation against
cross-site request forgery, which might lead to an attacker being able
to perform manipulation of a Trac site with the privileges of the
attacked Trac user.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.1-3sarge6.
