    Two vulnerabilities have been identified in the version of
    ldap-account-manager shipped with Debian 3.1 (sarge).
    
    CVE-2006-7191
    An untrusted PATH vulnerability could allow a local attacker to execute
    arbitrary code with elevated privileges by providing a malicious rm
    executable and specifying a PATH environment variable referencing this
    executable.
    
    CVE-2007-1840
    Improper escaping of HTML content could allow an attacker to execute a
    cross-site scripting attack (XSS) and execute arbitrary code in the
    victim's browser in the security context of the affected web site.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.9-2sarge1.  Newer versions of Debian (etch, lenny, and sid),
    are not affected.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ldap-account-manager 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.

      its next update.
