    Several remotely exploitable vulnerabilities have been discovered in the
    TYPO3 web content management framework.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-0255
        Chris John Riley discovered that the TYPO3-wide used encryption key is
        generated with an insufficiently random seed resulting in low entropy
        which makes it easier for attackers to crack this key.
    
    CVE-2009-0256
        Marcus Krause discovered that TYPO3 is not invalidating a supplied session
        on authentication which allows an attacker to take over a victims
        session via a session fixation attack.
    
    CVE-2009-0257
        Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to
        inject arbitrary web script or HTML via various arguments and user-
        supplied strings used in the indexed search system extension, adodb
        extension test scripts or the workspace module.
    
    CVE-2009-0258
        Mads Olesen discovered a remote command injection vulnerability in
        the indexed search system extension which allows attackers to
        execute arbitrary code via a crafted file name which is passed
        unescaped to various system tools that extract file content for
        the indexing.
    
    
    Because of CVE-2009-0255, please make sure that besides installing
    this update, you also create a new encryption key after the
    installation.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.2+debian-7.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your TYPO3 packages.
