the following CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id was
published for libstruts1.2-java some time ago.

| Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Apache Struts 1.2.7, and
| possibly other versions allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary
| web script or HTML via the query string, which is not properly quoted
| or filtered when the request handler generates an error message.

Unfortunately the vulnerability described above is not important enough
to get it fixed via regular security update in Debian oldstable. It does
not warrant a DSA.

However it would be nice if this could get fixed via a regular point update[1].
Please contact the release time for this.

This is an automatically generated mail, in case you are already working on an
upgrade this is of course pointless.
