Package        : horde2
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2195

Michael Marek discovered that the Horde web application framework performs
insufficient input sanitising, which might lead to the injection of web
script code through cross-site scripting.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain horde3 packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.8-1sarge3.

The unstable distribution (sid) does no longer contain horde2 packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your horde2 package.
