  Michael Krax discovered a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability
  in the CVS repository web frontend CVSTrac [1]. All versions below
  CVSTrac 1.1.5 are affected. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
  (CVE) project assigned the id CAN-2004-1146 [2] to the problem.

  Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/openpkg
  rpm -q cvstrac". If you have the "cvstrac" package installed and its
  version is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately
  upgrade it (see Solution) [3][4].

  Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
  [5][6], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [7][8] or a mirror
  location, verify its integrity [9], build a corresponding binary RPM
  from it [3] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the
  binary RPM [4]. For the most recent release OpenPKG 2.2, perform the
  following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for
  other releases adjust accordingly).

  $ ftp ftp.openpkg.org
  ftp> bin
  ftp> cd release/2.2/UPD
  ftp> get cvstrac-1.1.4-2.2.1.src.rpm
  ftp> bye
  $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -v --checksig cvstrac-1.1.4-2.2.1.src.rpm
  $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild cvstrac-1.1.4-2.2.1.src.rpm
  $ su -
  # <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/cvstrac-1.1.4-2.2.1.*.rpm
