    Package        : webcalendar
    Vulnerability  : authorisation failure
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2320
    BugTraq ID     : 14072
    Debian Bug     : 315671
    
    A vulnerability has been discovered in webcalendar, a PHP based
    multi-user calendar, that can lead to the disclosure of sensitive
    information to unauthorised parties.
    
    the old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the webcalendar package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.45-4sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.45-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar 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
