    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-4172
    Debian Bug     : 759718
    
    Marvin S. Addison discovered that Jasig phpCAS, a PHP library for the
    CAS authentication protocol, did not encode tickets before adding them
    to an URL, creating a possibility for cross site scripting.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.1-4+deb7u1.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php-cas packages.
