    Several vulnerabilities have been found in horde3, the horde web application
    framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-3237
    
    It has been discovered that horde3 is prone to cross-site scripting
    attacks via crafted number preferences or inline MIME text parts when
    using text/plain as MIME type.
    For lenny this issue was already fixed, but as an additional security
    precaution, the display of inline text was disabled in the configuration
    file.
    
    CVE-2009-3701
    
    It has been discovered that the horde3 administration interface is prone
    to cross-site scripting attacks due to the use of the PHP_SELF variable.
    This issue can only be exploited by authenticated administrators.
    
    CVE-2009-4363
    
    It has been discovered that horde3 is prone to several cross-site
    scripting attacks via crafted data:text/html values in HTML messages.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.2.2+debian0-2+lenny2.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.1.3-4etch7.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.3.6+debian0-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 packages.
