Subject: CVE request: multiple vulnerabilities in dtc


A number of problems have been found recently in dtc (Domain Technologie
Control) and reported to the Debian BTS. These are the bugs that affect
upstream code; please assign CVEs as you feel appropriate:

dtc saves the administrator password in plain text in
/var/lib/dtc/saved_install_config under the variable name conf_adm_pass.
It remains there even after initial configuration.

dtc-xen includes several command executions as root that use unchecked
user input in dtc-soap-server.

dtc stores user passwords and passwords for various services in unencrypted
form in the database.

Insufficient input checking in /shared/inc/sql/lists.php

The setup script for dtc writes the password for the MySQL user in the
world-readable file /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.

Insufficient input checking leads to a SQL injection vulnerability in

A SQL injection vulnerability in logPushlet.php can overwrite arbitrary
files as the MySQL system user.

dtc passes passwords to htpasswd using command line arguments, which can be
read by a local user.

dtc does not escape variables in HTML output in many places; for example
in the "Domain root TXT record:" field on the "DNS and MX" page where
JavaScript can be injected.

Note that these descriptions are mostly taken from the bug reports and may
not be suitable for direct publication without editing. I have checked as
far as possible that none of these were previously assigned CVEs but they
could be duplicates. There are often mitigating factors such as
user or administrator authentication.
