Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
phpLDAPadmin, a web based interface for administering LDAP servers,
tha allows  remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain phpldapadmin
packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.5-3sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.8.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you

        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given at the end of this advisory:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
