    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.

      Source archives:
