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+etch2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your roundup packages.
