    Package        : webcalendar
    Vulnerability  : uninitialised variable
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2762
    
    A vulnerability has been discovered in webcalendar, a PHP-based
    multi-user calendar, that allows a remote attacker to execute
    arbitrary PHP code when register_globals is turned on.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a webcalendar package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.45-4sarge5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-1
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package.

    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 at the end of this advisory:
    
    apt-get update
