The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the Horde
Application Framework version 3.2.2.

This is a security release that fixes unescaped output in the MIME library
(CVE-2008-3823), and further improves the XSS filter for HTML messages
(CVE-2008-3824). The unescaped output vulnerability can be triggered by
sending specially crafted e-mail messages to Horde users, if they use a Horde
mail client. All users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

Many thanks to Alexios Fakos for detecting these vulnerabilities, and oCERT
for notifying us.

The Horde Application Framework is a modular, general-purpose web application
framework written in PHP.  It provides an extensive array of classes that are
targeted at the common problems and tasks involved in developing modern web

     * Fixed unescaped output in the MIME library.
     * Further improved the XSS filter for HTML.
