    "r0t" discovered that gnatsweb, a web interface to GNU GNATS, did not correctly sanitize the database parameter in the main CGI script. This could allow the injection of arbitrary HTML, or javascript code.

    Vulnerability  : cross-site scripting
    Problem type   : remote

    "r0t" discovered that gnatsweb, a web interface to GNU GNATS, did not
    correctly sanitize the database parameter in the main CGI script.  This
    could allow the injection of arbitrary HTML, or javascript code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    4.00-1etch1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnatsweb package.
    
    Upgrade instructions

    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
