Multiple vulnerabilities in the Horde Application Framework can allow
for arbitrary files to be overwritten and cross-site scripting attacks.

Background
=========
Horde is a web application framework written in PHP.

Description
==========
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Horde:

* Stefan Esser of Sektion1 reported an error within the form library
  when handling image form fields (CVE-2009-3236).

* Martin Geisler and David Wharton reported that an error exists in
  the MIME viewer library when viewing unknown text parts and the
  preferences system in services/prefs.php when handling number
  preferences (CVE-2009-3237).

Impact
=====
A remote authenticated attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to
overwrite arbitrary files on the server, provided that the user has

Cross-Site Scripting attacks.
