    Package        : albatross
    Vulnerability  : design error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0044
    
    A design error has been discovered in the Albatross web application
    toolkit that causes user supplied data to be used as part of template
    execution and hence arbitrary code execution.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain albatross packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.20-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.33-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your albatross package.
