    The PHP interface displays information unchecked which was gathered from crawled external web servers. This could lead into a cross site scripting attack if somebody has control over the server responses of a remote web server which is crawled by ht://Check.

    [ Resent since this advisory did not appear in the list archive.
    Also, this is the real DSA 169-1. ]
    
    Package        : htcheck
    Vulnerability  : cross site scripting
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Ulf Harnhammer discovered a problem in ht://Check's PHP interface.
    The PHP interface displays information unchecked which was gathered
    from crawled external web servers.  This could lead into a cross site
    scripting attack if somebody has control over the server responses of
    a remote web server which is crawled by ht://Check.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 1.1-1.1 for the current stable
    distribution (woody) and in version 1.1-1.2 for the unstable release
    (sid).  The old stable release (potato) does not contain the htcheck
    package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your htcheck package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
