Package        : horde3
Vulnerability  : cross site scripting
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no 
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-3823

Will Drewry discovered that the Horde, allows remote attackers to send
an email with a crafted MIME attachment filename attribute to perform
cross site scripting.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1.3-4etch4.

For the testing distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.2.1+debian0-2+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 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
