Several security related problems have been discovered in webcalendar,
a PHP based multi-user calendar.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:

CVE-2005-3949

    Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to
    execute arbitrary SQL commands.

CVE-2005-3961

    Missing input sanitising allowas an attacker to overwrite local
    files.

CVE-2005-3982

    A CRLF injection vulnerability allows remote attackers to modify
    HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.45-4sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar 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.
