    Several vulnerabilities have been found in horde3, the horde web application
    framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
    
    
    CVE-2009-0932
    
    Gunnar Wrobel discovered a directory traversal vulnerability, which
    allows attackers to include and execute arbitrary local files via the
    driver parameter in Horde_Image.
    
    CVE-2008-3330
    
    It was discovered that an attacker could perform a cross-site scripting
    attack via the contact name, which allows attackers to inject arbitrary
    html code. This requires that the attacker has access to create
    contacts.
    
    CVE-2008-5917
    
    It was discovered that the horde XSS filter is prone to a cross-site
    scripting attack, which allows attackers to inject arbitrary html code.
    This is only exploitable when Internet Explorer is used.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.1.3-4etch5.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.2.2+debian0-2, which was already included in the lenny
    release.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.2+debian0-2.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 packages.

    Debian (oldstable)
    - ------------------
    
    Oldstable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.

      its next update.
