    Package        : fml
    Problem type   : improper character escaping
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The fml (a mailing list package) as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2
    suffers from a cross-site scripting problem. When generating index
    pages for list archives the `<' and `>' characters were not properly
    escaped for subjects.
    
    This has been fixed in version 3.0+beta.20000106-5, and we recommend
    that you upgrade your fml package to that version. Upgrading will
    automatically regenerate the index pages.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
