Debian: New zonecheck packages fix cross-site scripting

It was discovered that in zonecheck, a tool to check DNS configurations, the CGI does not perform sufficient sanitation of user input; an attacker can take advantage of this and pass script code in order to perform cross-site scripting attacks. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
