    Debian-specific: no
    Debian Bug     : 478121
    
    "The-0utl4w" discovered that the Kronolith, calendar component for
    the Horde Framework, didn't properly sanitise URL input, leading to
    a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the add event screen.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.4-1etch1.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kronolith2 package.
