Debian Security Advisory DSA-1560-1 security@debian.org

Package : kronolith2
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian Bug : 478121

"The-0utl4w" discovered that the Kronolith, calendar component for
the Horde Framework, didn't properly sanitise URL input, leading to
a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the add event screen.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.4-1etch1.

The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your kronolith2 package.

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

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