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
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.


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.


Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
