    Vinny Guido discovered that multiple input sanitising vulnerabilities
    in Fckeditor, a rich text web editor component, may lead to the
    execution of arbitrary code.
    
    The old stable distribution (etch) doesn't contain fckeditor.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.6.2-1lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.6.4.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your fckeditor package.
