Package        : gforge
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-2430
Debian Bug     : 328224

Joxean Koret discovered several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in
Gforge, an online collaboration suite for software development, which
allow injection of web script code.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain gforge packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1-31sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1-31sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gforge package.
