Package        : fckeditor
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2009-2265

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.
