Debian Security Advisory DSA-1528-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : serendipity
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-6205 CVE-2008-0124
BugTraq ID : 28298
Debian Bug : 469667

Peter Hüwe and Hanno Böck discovered that Serendipity, a weblog manager,
did not properly sanitise input to several scripts which allowed for
cross site scripting.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1.0.4-1+etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain a serendipity package.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your serendipity package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
