    It was discovered that sork-passwd-h3, a Horde3 module for users to
    change their password, is prone to a cross-site scripting attack via the
    backend parameter.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0-2+etch1.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
