Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Earl Hood, author of mhonarc, a mail to HTML converter, discovered a
cross site scripting vulnerability in this package. A specially

fixed in version 2.5.2-1.3.
For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
in version 2.4.4-1.3.
