Description Ville Skyttä 2006-09-14 15:40:11 EDT
xsp/mod_mono has reportedly a directory traversal vulnerability, see

Information about this is pretty scarce, but it should be investigated whether
this applies to the FE xsp/mod_mono packages in addition to SuSE products.
Comment 1 Paul F. Johnson 2006-09-14 16:42:35 EDT
I've looked at this report and by the looks of it, yes the FE xsp/mod_mono will
come under the same umberella (built from the same sources). I've asked on the
mono-developers list if there is a patch available and if there is, I shall
apply it quickly.

Could you please advise what to do in the meantime? Should I put an advisory out
on the FE list alerting people to the issue?
Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2006-09-14 16:47:36 EDT
I wouldn't go so far as to send an advisory.  This is currently classified as a
low-risk vulnerability so I'd suggest simply patching it ASAP.

You may be able to extract the fix from the SUSE package if you can find it.
Comment 3 Paul F. Johnson 2006-09-14 16:54:55 EDT
Just been advised that it only relates to the 1.1.14 version of mod_mono not
1.1.17 (which is packaged for both FE5 and rawhide)

Closing the bug. Thanks for the advice :-)
