Package        : mhonarc
Vulnerability  : cross site scripting
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1388

Earl Hood, author of mhonarc, a mail to HTML converter, discovered a
cross site scripting vulnerability in this package.  A specially
crafted HTML mail message can introduce foreign scripting content in
archives, by-passing MHonArc's HTML script filtering.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 2.5.2-1.3.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
in version 2.4.4-1.3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.14-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mhonarc package.

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.
