    Package        : horde3
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-6018
    
    Ulf Harnhammer discovered that the HTML filter of the Horde web
    application framework performed insufficient input sanitising, which
    may lead to the deletion of emails if a user is tricked into viewing
    a malformed email inside the Imp client.
    
    This update also provides backported bugfixes to the cross-site 
    scripting filter and the user management API from the latest Horde
    release 3.1.6.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.3-4etch2.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected. An update to
    Etch is recommended, though.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 package.

    dpkg -i file.deb

    Debian 4.0 (stable)
    - -------------------
    
    Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.

      its next update.
