Package        : lxr-cvs
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitizing
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CVE-2010-1625 CVE-2010-1738 CVE-2010-1448 CVE-2009-4497
Debian Bugs    : 588137 585412 588036 575745

Dan Rosenberg discovered that in lxr-cvs, a code-indexing tool with a
web frontend, not enough sanitation of user input is performed; an
attacker can take advantage of this and pass script code in order to
perform cross-site scripting attacks.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.5+cvs20071020-1+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.5+cvs20071020-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your lxr-cvs packages.

Upgrade instructions
- - --------------------

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
