Subject: Full Disclosure:  Arbitrary Code Execution in LedgerSMB CVE-2006-5872

CVE-2006-5872 (filed against SQL-Ledger) also affects LedgerSMB.  This 
was first fixed in LedgerSMB 1.1.5 but due to a number of unrelated 
bugs, we recommend upgrading to 1.1.7.  SQL-Ledger fixed the problem in 

This occurs due to the improper handling of input handling in the 
redirect function which also allows the user to specify a file with 
arguments to be run via Perl.  However, since one can specify -e as the 
script (making the command line perl -e ....) one can specify whatever 
code to execute one would like.

The following link demonstrates the vulnerability. 

Best Wishes,
