    Two security vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mahara, a fully
    featured electronic portfolio, weblog, resume builder and social
    networking system:
    
    CVE-2011-0439
    
        A security review commissioned by a Mahara user discovered that
        Mahara processes unsanitized input which can lead to cross-site
        scripting (XSS).
    
    CVE-2011-0440
    
        Mahara Developers discovered that Mahara doesn't check the session
        key under certain circumstances which can be exploited as
        cross-site request forgery (CSRF) and can lead to the deletion of
        blogs.
    
    For the old stable distribution (lenny) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-4+lenny8.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.6-2+squeeze1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mahara package.
