    Package        : xapian-omega
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitization
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2009-2947
    
    It was discovered that xapian-omega, a CGI interface for searching xapian
    databases, is not properly escaping user supplied input when printing
    exceptions.  An attacker can use this to conduct cross-site scripting
    attacks via crafted search queries resulting in an exception and steal
    potentially sensitive data from web applications running on the same domain
    or embedding the search engine into a website.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.9-1+etch1.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.7-3+lenny1.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, this problem
    will be fixed soon.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xapian-omega packages.
