The ht://Dig system is a Web search and indexing system for a small domain
or intranet.

Michael Krax reported a cross-site scripting bug affecting htdig. An
attacker could construct a carefully crafted URL which can cause a web
browser to execute malicious script once visited.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2005-0085
to this issue.

Users of htdig should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch, and are not vulnerable to this issue.
