Package        : ejabberd
Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2009-0934

It was discovered that ejabberd, a distributed, fault-tolerant
Jabber/XMPP server, does not sufficiently sanitise MUC logs, allowing
remote attackers to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.1-6+lenny1.

The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected by this issue.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.5-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ejabberd packages.
