Package : firefox-sage
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2009-4102
Debian Bug : 559267

It was discovered that firefox-sage, a lightweight RSS and Atom feed
reader for Firefox, does not sanitise the RSS feed information
correctly, which makes it prone to a cross-site scripting and a
cross-domain scripting attack.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.2-0.1+lenny1.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.6-4etch1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.3-3.


We recommend that you upgrade your firefox-sage packages.
