    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in mahara, an electronic portfolio,
    weblog, and resume builder. The following Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project ids identify them:
    
    CVE-2010-1667
    
        Multiple pages performed insufficient input sanitising, making them
        vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.
    
    CVE-2010-1668
    
        Multiple forms lacked protection against cross-site request forgery
        attacks, therefore making them vulnerable.
    
    CVE-2010-1670
    
        Gregor Anzelj discovered that it was possible to accidentally
        configure an installation of mahara that allows access to another
        user's account without a password.
    
    CVE-2010-2479
    
        Certain Internet Explorer-specific cross-site scripting
        vulnerabilities were discovered in HTML Purifier, of which a copy
        is included in the mahara package.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), the problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-4+lenny6.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), the problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), the problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.5.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mahara packages.
