    Debian Bug     : 485814
    
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the
    TYPO3 content management framework.
    
    Because of a not sufficiently secure default value of the TYPO3
    configuration variable fileDenyPattern, authenticated backend users
    could upload files that allowed to execute arbitrary code as the
    webserver user.
    
    User input processed by fe_adminlib.inc is not being properly filtered
    to prevent Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks, which is exposed when
    specific plugins are in use.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.2+debian-5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1.7-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your typo3 package.
