eGroupWare is affected by several SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.

2.  Impact Information


eGroupWare is a suite of web-based group applications including calendar, address book, messenger and email.


Multiple SQL injection and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been found in several eGroupWare modules.


An attacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerabilities to gain information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

3.  Resolution Information


There is no known workaround at this time.


All eGroupWare users should upgrade to the latest version:

Code Listing 3.1: Resolution

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/egroupware-"
