    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.
