Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-23 17:10:05 UTC
A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way Kronolith, the Horde calendar application, sanitized content of certain event location parameters passed to month, monthlist and prevmonthlist application fields. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL that, when visited would lead to arbitrary HTML or webscript execution.

Resolving as WONTFIX.  

We are working on packaging the new pear-based Horde, so this will eventually be fixed when that is finished.
