Debian: New xapian-omega packages fix cross-site scripting

It was discovered that xapian-omega, a CGI interface for searching xapian databases, is not properly escaping user supplied input when printing exceptions. An attacker can use this to conduct cross-site scripting attacks via crafted search queries resulting in an exception and steal potentially sensitive data from web applications running on the same domain or embedding the search engine into a website. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

Package        : xapian-omega
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitization
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-2947

It was discovered that xapian-omega, a CGI interface for searching xapian
databases, is not properly escaping user supplied input when printing
exceptions.  An attacker can use this to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks via crafted search queries resulting in an exception and steal
potentially sensitive data from web applications running on the same domain
or embedding the search engine into a website.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.9-1+etch1.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.7-3+lenny1.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, this problem
will be fixed soon.


We recommend that you upgrade your xapian-omega packages.
