Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote

Debian Bug     : 340323

Daniel Schreckling discovered that the MIME viewer in horde3, a web
application suite, does not always sanitise its input leaving a
possibility to force the return of malicious code that could be
executed on the vicitims machine.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain horde3 packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.0.4-4sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.0.7-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 package.
