Package        : mahara
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitization
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-0664


It was discovered that mahara, an electronic portfolio, weblog, and
resume builder, is prone to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks because
of missing input sanitization of the introduction text field in user
profiles and any text field in a user view.


The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain mahara.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.4-4+lenny2.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.3-1.


We recommend that you upgrade your mahara packages.

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

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

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
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
