    Debian Bug     : 536554                       
    
    
    The previous update introduced a regression in main.php, causing the
    module to fail. This update corrects the flaw. . For reference the
    original advisory text is below.
    
    
    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+etch2.                                                 
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0-2+lenny2.                                              
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1-1.2.                                                   
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sork-passwd-h3 packages.
