It was reported that turba does not properly check permissions on address books,
allowing users to modify addresses in other users' address books. This problem
affects both shared and non-shared address books. Knowing (or guessing) the
object_id seems to be sufficient to allow modification of other users' addresses.
More information can be found in Debian bug report, which also contains some
Upstream bug report:
Turba 2.1.7 is out with the patches, final versions can also be found at Debian's.
From news section on project upstream page:
2008-02-15: The Turba Contact Manager versions H3 (2.2-RC3) and H3 (2.1.7)
have been released. These are security releases that fix unchecked access to
contacts in the same SQL table, if the unique key of another user's contact
can be guessed.
