Package        : sork-passwd-h3
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote                       
Debian-specific: no                           
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-2360                
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.
