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.


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.
