[DSA109] DSA-109-1 faqomatic Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-109-1 faqomatic

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Due to unescaped HTML code Faq-O-Matic returned unverified scripting
code to the browser. With some tweaking this enables a possible hacker to
steal cookies from one of the Faq-O-Matic moderators or the admin.
Cross-Site Scripting is a type of problem that allows a malicious
person to make another person run some JavaScript in their browser.
The JavaScript is executed on the victims machine and is in the
context of the website running the Faq-O-Matic Frequently Asked
Question manager.
This problem has been fixed in version 2.603-1.2 for the stable Debian
distribution and version 2.712-2 for the current testing/unstable
We recommend that you upgrade your faqomatic package if you have it
