    Several vulnerabilities have been found in imp4, a webmail component for
    the horde framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2008-4182
    
    It was discovered that imp4 suffers from a cross-site scripting (XSS)
    attack via the user field in an IMAP session, which allows attackers to
    inject arbitrary HTML code.
    
    CVE-2009-0930
    
    It was discovered that imp4 is prone to several cross-site scripting
    (XSS) attacks via several vectors in the mail code allowing attackers
    to inject arbitrary HTML code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1.3-4etch1.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2-4, 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 4.2-4.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imp4 packages.

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