Wilfried Goesgens discovered that WebCit, the web-based user interface
for the Citadel groupware system, contains a format string
vulnerability in the mini_calendar component, possibly allowing
arbitrary code execution (CVE-2009-0364).

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 7.37-dfsg-7.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your webcit packages.
