    CVE-2005-3982
    
        A CRLF injection vulnerability allows remote attackers to modify
        HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain webcalendar packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.45-4sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package.
