Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2009-4102

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

We recommend that you upgrade your firefox-sage packages.
