Description Lubomir Kundrak 2008-02-21 01:00:46 UTC
Description of problem:

The Diatheke CGI allows arbitrary command execution in the context of 
the webserver, e.g. www-data by simply abusing the range parameter.

For example, &range=`yes` will consume tons of resources on the affected 
webserver. Escalation of privleges and command shells are left as an 
exercise to the reader.

Comment 7 Tomas Hoger 2008-02-26 08:07:57 UTC
Do Fedora sword packages really need this patch?  I fail to see diatheke.pl in
any of the sword non-source RPMs... 

Comment 8 Tomas Hoger 2008-04-24 11:46:48 UTC
Fedora packages were updated, however, we do not seem to ship affected script. 
Closing as notabug.
