    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.
