    Package        : mhonarc
    Vulnerability  : cross site scripting
    Problem-type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1307
    Steven Christey discovered a cross site scripting vulnerability in
    mhonarc, a mail to HTML converter.  Carefully crafted message headers
    can introduce cross site scripting when mhonarc is configured to
    display all headers lines on the web.  However, it is often useful to
    restrict the displayed header lines to To, From and Subject, in which
    case the vulnerability cannot be exploited.
    This problem has been fixed in version 2.5.2-1.2 for the current
    stable distribution (woody), in version 2.4.4-1.2 for the old stable
    distribution (potato) and in version 2.5.13-1 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).
    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.
