Package : mailreader Vulnerability : missing input sanitising Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2005-0386

Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a cross-site scripting problem in mailreader, a simple, but powerful WWW mail reader system, when displaying messages of the MIME types text/enriched or text/richtext.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.29-5woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.29-11.

We recommend that you upgrade your mailreader package.
