Package        : horde3
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CVE-2009-3237 CVE-2009-3701 CVE-2009-4363

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.
