    Package        : phpbb2
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1896
    Debian Bug     : 365533
    
    It was discovered that phpbb2, a web based bulletin board, does
    insufficiently sanitise values passed to the "Font Colour 3" setting,
    which might lead to the execution of injected code by admin users.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain phpbb2 packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.13+1-6sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpbb2 package.
