Description Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2009-09-15 06:45:45 UTC
From Secunia:

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in the Horde Application Framework, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion and cross-site scripting attacks and by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) An error within the form library when handling image form fields can be exploited to overwrite arbitrary local files.

Successful exploitation requires that an application uses the affected image fields (e.g. Ansel or Turba) and that the attacker has write permissions.

2) An error exists within the MIME Viewer library when rendering unknown text parts. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site if malicious data is viewed.

3) The preferences system does not properly sanitise numeric preference types. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in contact of an affected site.

Webmail and Groupware are affected by #2 and #3.

Cancel that. Both are vulnerable to all three issues.

CVE-2009-3236 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3236):
  Unspecified vulnerability in the form library in Horde Application
  Framework 3.2 before 3.2.5 and 3.3 before 3.3.5; Groupware 1.1 before
  1.1.6 and 1.2 before 1.2.4; and Groupware Webmail Edition 1.1 before
  1.1.6 and 1.2 before 1.2.4; allows remote attackers, with privileges
  to write to the address book, to overwrite arbitrary files via
  crafted "image form fields."

CVE-2009-3237 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3237):
  Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in Horde
  Application Framework 3.2 before 3.2.5 and 3.3 before 3.3.5;
  Groupware 1.1 before 1.1.6 and 1.2 before 1.2.4; and Groupware
  Webmail Edition 1.1 before 1.1.6 and 1.2 before 1.2.4; allow remote
  attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the (1) crafted
  number preferences that are not properly handled in the preference
  system (services/prefs.php), as demonstrated by the sidebar_width
  parameter; or (2) crafted unknown MIME "text parts" that are not
  properly handled in the MIME viewer library (config/mime_drivers.php).
