    Markus Petrux discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the
    taxonomy module of drupal6, a fully-featured content management
    framework. It is also possible that certain browsers using the UTF-7
    encoding are vulnerable to a different cross-site scripting
    vulnerability.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 6.6-3lenny2.
    
    The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain drupal6.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 6.11-1.1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal6 packages.
