    Peter Hüwe and Hanno Böck discovered that Serendipity, a weblog manager,
    did not properly sanitise input to several scripts which allowed for
    cross site scripting.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    1.0.4-1+etch1.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain a serendipity package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your serendipity 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 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.

      its next update.
