Package        : kronolith2
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian Bug     : 478121

"The-0utl4w" discovered that the Kronolith, calendar component for
the Horde Framework, didn't properly sanitise URL input, leading to
a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the add event screen.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.4-1etch1.

The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your kronolith2 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.
