    Package        : mailreader
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0386
    
    Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
    cross-site scripting problem in mailreader, a simple, but powerful WWW
    mail reader system, when displaying messages of the MIME types
    text/enriched or text/richtext.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.29-5woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.29-11.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mailreader package.
