Debian Security Advisory DSA-1528-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst March 24, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : serendipity Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-6205 CVE-2008-0124 BugTraq ID : 28298 Debian Bug : 469667

Peter Hüwe and Hanno Böck discovered that Serendipity, a weblog manager, did not properly sanitise input to several scripts which allowed for cross site scripting.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.4-1+etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain a serendipity package.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your serendipity package.
