    It was discovered that gforge, collaborative development tool, is prone
    to a cross-site scripting attack via the helpname parameter. Beside
    fixing this issue, the update also introduces some additional input
    sanitising. However, there are no known attack vectors.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problem have been fixed in
    version 4.7~rc2-7lenny2.
    
    The oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.5.14-22etch12.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 4.8.1-3.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gforge packages.
