Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA088] DSA-088-1 fml

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-088-1 fml

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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.
