    Package        : webcalendar
    Vulnerability  : verbose error message
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2247
    Debian Bug     : 366927
    
    David Maciejak noticed that webcalendar, a PHP-Based multi-user
    calendar, returns different error messages on login attempts for an
    invalid password and a non-existing user, allowing remote attackers to
    gain information about valid usernames.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a webcalendar package
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.45-4sarge4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package.

    dpkg -i file.deb
