Package        : phpgedview
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-5051
Debian Bug     : 443901

It was discovered that phpGedView, an application to provide online access
to genealogical data, performed insufficient input sanitising on some
parameters, making it vulnerable to cross site scripting.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
4.0.2.dfsg-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
4.1.e+4.1.1-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpgedview 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.
