- Date Reported:
- 05 Dec 2001
- Affected Packages:
- 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)
- Architecture-independent component:
MD5 checksums of the listed files are available in the original advisory.
