    Josh Triplett discovered that ikiwiki did not block Javascript in
    URLs, leading to cross-site scripting vulnerabilities (CVE-2008-0808,
    CVE-2008-0809).
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.33.4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.31.1.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) did not contain an ikiwiki package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ikiwiki package.
    
    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
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
