    It was discovered that firefox-sage, a lightweight RSS and Atom feed
    reader for Firefox, does not sanitise the RSS feed information
    correctly, which makes it prone to a cross-site scripting and a
    cross-domain scripting attack.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.2-0.1+lenny1.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.6-4etch1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.3-3.
