Package        : webcalendar
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-1343

It was discovered that WebCalendar, a PHP-based calendar application,
insufficiently protects an internal variable, which allows remote file

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.45-4sarge6.

The upcoming stable distribution (etch) no longer contains webcalendar

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package.
