    A cross site scripting vulnerability has been reported for Bugzilla, a
    web-based bug tracking system.  Bugzilla does not properly sanitize
    any input submitted by users.  As a result, it is possible for a
    remote attacker to create a malicious link containing script code
    which will be executed in the browser of a legitimate user, in the
    context of the website running Bugzilla.  This issue may be exploited
    to steal cookie-based authentication credentials from legitimate users
    of the website running the vulnerable software.
    
    This vulnerability only affects users who have the 'quips' feature
    enabled and who upgraded from version 2.10 which did not exist inside
    of Debian.  The Debian package history of Bugzilla starts with 1.13
    and jumped to 2.13.  However, users could have installed version 2.10
    prior to the Debian package.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 2.14.2-0woody3.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a Bugzilla
    package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bugzilla packages.
    
    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.
