Package        : tomcat5.5
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-1947

Tt was discovered that the Host Manager web application performed
insufficient input sanitising, which could lead to cross-site scripting.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.5.20-2etch3.

version 5.5.26-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your tomcat5.5 packages.
