Johannes Greil of SEC Consult discovered several cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities in kronolith, the Horde calendar application.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.1.4-2sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.6-1 of kronolith2.

We recommend that you upgrade your kronolith and kronolith2 packages.
