    Package        : webcalendar
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-6669
    
    It was discovered that WebCalendar, a PHP-based calendar application,
    performs insufficient sanitising in the exports handler, which allows
    injection of web script.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.45-4sarge7.
    
    The stable distribution (etch) no longer contains WebCalendar packages.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.5-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package.
