    Package        : phpbb2
    Vulnerability  : missing input validation
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2161
    Debian Bug     : 317739
    
    A cross-site scripting vulnerability has been detected in phpBB2, a
    fully featured and skinneable flat webforum software, that allows
    remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via nested
    tags.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain phpbb2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.13-6sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.13-6sarge1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpbb2 packages.
