USN-397-1: mono vulnerability

20 December 2006

mono vulnerability



Jose Ramon Palanco discovered that the mono System.Web class did not
consistently verify local file paths. As a result, the source code for
mono web applications could be retrieved remotely, possibly leading to
further compromise via the application's source.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.10
  • libmono-system-web2.0-cil -
  • libmono-system-web1.0-cil -
Ubuntu 6.06
  • mono-classlib-2.0 -
  • mono-classlib-1.0 -

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart any mono web
applications to effect the necessary changes.
