Description

HTML::Scrubber is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability when the comment feature is enabled. It allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted comment.

For Debian 6 squeeze, this has been fixed in libhtml-scrubber-perl version 0.08-4+deb6u1.

Cheers,
