Package        : sword
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0015

Ulf Härnhammar discovered that due to missing input sanitising in
diatheke, a CGI script for making and browsing a bible website, it is
possible to execute arbitrary commands via a specially crafted URL.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.3-3woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your diatheke package.
