Dear users of TYPO3,

It has been discovered that the extensions pmk_rssnewsexport and
cm_rdfexport are vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks.

==== Component Type ====
Third party extensions. These extensions are not part of the TYPO3
default installation.

==== Affected Versions ====
pmk_rssnewsexport: All versions
cm_rdfexport: All versions

==== Vulnerability Type ====
SQL Injection

==== Severity ====

==== Problem Description ====
Both extensions are open to SQL injection flaws because they fail to
properly sanitize user-supplied input.

==== Solution ====
No fixed versions are available, so users are encouraged to remove these
extensions from their TYPO3 installation. The functionality of both
extensions is included in current versions of extension tt_news,
therefore pmk_rssnewsexport and cm_rdfexportare are obsolete and were
removed from TER. Users of the vulnerable extensions should use the
RDF/RSS export functionality of tt_news instead.

==== General advice ====
Follow the recommendations that are given in the TYPO3 Security Cookbook
[1]. Check the TYPO3 security bulletin page frequently for updates [2].
This bulletin TYPO3-20080416-2 is available at [3].

==== Credits ====
The TYPO3 Security Team wishes to thank Anders Skovsgaard from
Hackavoid.com who discovered and reported the security issue.
