Description Harlan Lieberman-Berg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-24 16:56:33 UTC
This affects <=2.1.1.  Remote attackers can read arbitrary files by supplying '../' sequences.  Upstream has confirmed, and released patches and upgraded versions.
Comment 1 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-25 10:39:02 UTC
x86, please mark at least version 2.1.1 stable, thank you
Comment 2 Sander Knopper 2006-05-25 10:54:52 UTC
on x86:

[ebuild  N    ] dev-python/cherrypy-2.1.1

Passes all tests and installs fine.

When running the HelloWorld example from the cherrypy website I didn't notice any problems. The output mentioned the server was running at port 8080 so I connected to the port with a browser and saw the webpage with the correct content.

x86 done... thanks Sander...
Comment 4 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-25 12:38:22 UTC
ready for glsa vote, tend to say no
Comment 5 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-26 04:00:10 UTC
I tend to vote yes
Comment 6 Wolf Giesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-26 04:03:18 UTC
I vote yes since you might be able to reveal DB passwords and other stuff like that.
Comment 7 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-27 02:01:50 UTC
