Package        : albatross
Vulnerability  : design error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0044

A design error has been discovered in the Albatross web application
toolkit that causes user supplied data to be used as part of template
execution and hence arbitrary code execution.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.20-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.33-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your albatross package.
