    Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in
    phpLDAPadmin, a web based interface for administering LDAP servers,
    tha allows  remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain phpldapadmin
    packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.5-3sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.8.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.
    
    
    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 at the end of this advisory:
    
    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.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
