    Package        : trac
    Vulnerability  : cross-site request forgery
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The Trac update in DSA 1209 introduced a regression. This update corrects
    this flaw. For completeness, the original advisory text below:
     
    It was discovered that Trac, a wiki and issue tracking system for
    software development projects, performs insufficient validation against
    cross-site request forgery, which might lead to an attacker being able
    to perform manipulation of a Trac site with the privileges of the
    attacked Trac user.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.1-3sarge6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.10.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your trac package.

      Source archives:

      its next update.
