    Package        : drupal
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4002
    
    Ayman Hourieh discovered that Drupal, a dynamic website platform,
    performs insufficient input sanitising in the user module, which
    might lead to cross-site scripting.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.3-6.1sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.8-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.
