    Package        : horde3
    Vulnerability  : design error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3344
    Debian Bugs    : 332290 332289
    
    Mike O'Connor discovered that the default installation of Horde3 on
    Debian includes an administrator account without a password.  Already
    configured installations will not be altered by this update.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain horde3 packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.4-4sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.5-2
    
    We recommend that you verify your horde3 admin account if you have
    installed Horde3.
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    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
