Package        : roundup
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-1474
Debian Bug     : 472643

Roundup, an issue tracking system, fails to properly escape HTML input,
allowing an attacker to inject client-side code (typically JavaScript)
into a document that may be viewed in the victim's browser.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your roundup packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
- -------------------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.

Source archives:

    Size/MD5 checksum:      690 2bf102c80abab65bf5b7d8804a29bc4d
    Size/MD5 checksum:  1058595 38de336cf23d0dc20df17695b7c72806
    Size/MD5 checksum:    25739 61583ff7c94651b7380794b421fcc521

Architecture independent packages:

    Size/MD5 checksum:  1003008 00f33566e9993e7aaa37f6b99c3d186e

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
