Package        : phpsysinfo
Vulnerability  : directory traversal
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0536

Albert Puigsech Galicia <ripe@7a69ezine.org> reported that phpsysinfo,
a web-based program to display status information about the system,
contains two vulnerabilities which could allow local files to be read,
or arbitrary PHP code to be executed, under the privileges of the web
server process (usually www-data).  These vulnerabilities require
access to a writable directory on the system in order to be exploited.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0-3woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
See Debian bug #200543.

We recommend that you update your phpsysinfo 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.
