    Nitin Venkatesh discovered that websvn, a web viewer for Subversion
    repositories, is susceptible to cross-site scripting attacks via
    specially crafted file and directory names in repositories.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.3-1.2+deb8u2.
