    Package        : info2www
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1341
    Debian Bug     : 281655
    
    Nicolas Gregoire discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in
    info2www, a converter for info files to HTML.  A malicious person
    could place a harmless looking link on the web that could cause
    arbitrary commands to be executed in the browser of the victim user.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.2.9-20woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.2.9-23.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your info2www package.
