    Package        : w3mmee-ssl
    Vulnerability  : missing HTML quoting
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1335 CAN-2002-1348
    
    Hironori Sakamoto, one of the w3m developers, found two security
    vulnerabilities in w3m and associated programs.  The w3m browser does
    not properly escape HTML tags in frame contents and img alt
    attributes.  A malicious HTML frame or img alt attribute may deceive a
    user to send his local cookies which are used for configuration.  The
    information is not leaked automatically, though.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.3.p23.3-1.5.  Please note that the update also contains an
    important patch to make the program work on the powerpc platform again.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected by these
    problems.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.3.p24.17-3 and later.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your w3mmee-ssl packages.
