This update corrects the search feature in trac, an enhanced wiki
and issue tracking system for software development projects, which
broke with the last security update.  For completeness please find
below the original advisory text:

   Several vulnerabilies have been discovered in trac, an enhanced wiki
   and issue tracking system for software development projects.  The
   Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifie the following
   problems:

CVE-2005-4065

    Due to missing input sanitising it is possible to inject arbitrary
    SQL code into the SQL statements.

CVE-2005-4644

    A cross-site scripting vulnerability has been discovered that
    allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain trac packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.1-3sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your trac 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.
