Package        : kronolith2
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
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.
