Version 1.4.15
Security Upgrade
Plugins - Vacation Local
Category: Obsolete

(Obsolete: See Local User Autoresponder and Mail Forwarder plugin)
Allows users to create an auto-respond message to all incoming email while they're away.

Vacation data can be uploaded to the server using FTP or SUID script methods. Lookup of correct FTP server via LDAP is also supported.

This plugin is only intended for systems where email users have local user accounts (or at least FTP access with home directories that the SMTP server knows about), and where you are running a vacation program that knows what to do with the vacation and .forward files this plugin places into users' home directories. Note that this plugin only manages those files, and is not itself responsible for your SMTP server actually sending the auto-replies.

Version 2.0
by Paul Lesniewski on Apr 19, 2005
[ vacation_local-2.0-1.4.tar.gz tarball (23497 d/l) Help ]
Requires: SquirrelMail 1.4.0

Description:
  • Integrated FTP functionality.
  • Added optional .forward file functionality
  • Added LDAP lookups of FTP server (thanks to acqant at optonline dot net)


Version 1.0
by Paul Lesniewski on Feb 3, 2005
[ vacation_local-1.0-1.4.tar.gz tarball (5115 d/l) Help ]
Requires: SquirrelMail 1.4.0

Description: Due to the nature of the security problems with versions prior to 1.0 (attacker can gain root), upgrade is strongly advised.
  • Fixed security exploit that allowed arbitrary suid command execution as well as retrieval of any system file whatsoever. The name of the binary has changed, so please be sure to remove all traces of the ftpfile executable from /usr/local/sbin or wherever else you may have installed it!
  • Changed plugin name to reduce confusion. This means you need to manually remove older versions of this plugin under the vacation directory, as this version will install into the vacation_local directory.
  • Lots of code cleanup. No more register_globals=On code, no more one-off internationalization, no more non-standard HTML. Whew.
