    Dan Rosenberg discovered that in lxr-cvs, a code-indexing tool with a web frontend, not enough sanitation of user input is performed; an attacker can take advantage of this and pass script code in order to perform cross-site scripting attacks.

    Dan Rosenberg discovered that in lxr-cvs, a code-indexing tool with a

    attacker can take advantage of this and pass script code in order to
    perform cross-site scripting attacks.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.5+cvs20071020-1+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.5+cvs20071020-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lxr-cvs packages.
