Security database references:
In the Bugtraq database (at SecurityFocus): BugTraq ID 3623.
More information:
The fml (a mailing list package) as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 suffers from a cross-site scripting problem. When generating index pages for list archives the `<' and `>' characters were not properly escaped for subjects.

This has been fixed in version 3.0+beta.20000106-5, and we recommend that you upgrade your fml package to that version. Upgrading will automatically regenerate the index pages.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (potato)
