Debian: New phpsysinfo packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpsysinfo, a PHP based host information application. Maksymilian Arciemowicz discoverd several cross site scripting problems. Christopher Kunz discovered that local variables get overwritten unconditionally and are trusted later, which could lead to the inclusion of arbitrary files. Christopher Kunz discovered that user-supplied input is used unsanitised, causing a HTTP Response splitting problem. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
