    Package        : otrs2
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2007-2524
    
    It was discovered that the Open Ticket Request System performs
    insufficient input sanitising for the Subaction parameter, which allows
    the injection of arbitrary web script code.
    
    The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include otrs2.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.4p01-18.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) isn't affected by this problem.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your otrs2 package.
