Subject: CVE request: hastymail before 1.01 XSS


"Many thanks to Julien CAYSSOL who discovered and reported the issue. The 
specific problem is an XSS attack vector in HTML formatted messages that takes 
advantage of background attributes used with table cell elements. Due to an 
incorrect implementation of the new htmLawed HTML filter this attribute value 
was not properly sanitized and could be used to inject executable JavaScript. 
This was NOT a flaw in the htmLawed filter code itself, but a problem with 
it's specific use in Hastymail2. The Hastymail2 1.01 release was pacakages 
specifically to address this one issue. "
