Package : horde2
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3570
BugTraq ID : 15409
Debian Bug : 338983

A vulnerability has been discovered in horde2, a web application
suite, that allows attackers to insert arbitary script code into the
error web page.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain horde2 packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.8-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.9-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your horde2 package.
