    Roundup, an issue tracking system, fails to properly escape HTML input,
    allowing an attacker to inject client-side code (typically JavaScript)
    into a document that may be viewed in the victim's browser.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    1.2.1-5+etch1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your roundup packages.
