Debian Security Advisory DSA-088-1                   security@debian.org

Package        : fml
Problem type   : improper character escaping
Debian-specific: no

The fml (a mailing list package) as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2
suffers from a cross-site scripting problem. When generating index
pages for list archives the `<' and `>' characters were not properly
escaped for subjects.

This has been fixed in version 3.0+beta.20000106-5, and we recommend
that you upgrade your fml package to that version. Upgrading will
automatically regenerate the index pages.

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


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
---------------------------------

  Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
