Several vulnerabilities have been found in horde3, the horde web application
framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:


Gunnar Wrobel discovered a directory traversal vulnerability, which
allows attackers to include and execute arbitrary local files via the
driver parameter in Horde_Image.


It was discovered that an attacker could perform a cross-site scripting
attack via the contact name, which allows attackers to inject arbitrary
html code. This requires that the attacker has access to create


It was discovered that the horde XSS filter is prone to a cross-site
scripting attack, which allows attackers to inject arbitrary html code.
This is only exploitable when Internet Explorer is used.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.1.3-4etch5.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.2.2+debian0-2, which was already included in the lenny

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.2+debian0-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 packages.

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.

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
- -------------------------------

Debian (oldstable)
- ------------------

Oldstable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.

Source archives:
    Size/MD5 checksum:  5232958 fbc56c608ac81474b846b1b4b7bb5ee7
    Size/MD5 checksum:    13749 d7ad332e2f535b9df1ab49bd9c7233fa
    Size/MD5 checksum:     1076 c6082f3a21860b6b65b7edc4c58b0c07

Architecture independent packages:
    Size/MD5 checksum:  5274074 e4cfd0484345a153c33481101472a1fe

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
