Debian Security Advisory DSA 700-1                     security@debian.org

Package        : mailreader
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0386

Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
cross-site scripting problem in mailreader, a simple, but powerful WWW
mail reader system, when displaying messages of the MIME types
text/enriched or text/richtext.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.3.29-5woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.3.29-11.

We recommend that you upgrade your mailreader 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.

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
