Subject: blosxom XSS issue (CVE-2008-2236)


 I'd like to inform you of a XSS issue in blosxom which was reported
by Yoshinori Ohta of Business Architects Inc. and got assigned the IDs
CVE-2008-2236 and JVN#03300113. The problem allowed to inject arbitrary
output into the default error page and possibly any plugin that uses the
$flavour variable in its output directly.

 A fixed version was released today and announced on the blosxom-users

 The Debian Bug about the issue:

 The patch to fix the problem:

 Hope that helps. :)
