Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA535] DSA-535-1 squirrelmail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-535-1 squirrelmail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Four vulnerabilities were discovered in squirrelmail:
Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities
in SquirrelMail 1.4.2 permit remote attackers to execute arbitrary
script as other users and possibly steal authentication information
via multiple attack vectors, including the mailbox parameter in
compose.php.
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in mime.php
for SquirrelMail before 1.4.3 permits remote attackers to insert
arbitrary HTML and script via the content-type mail header, as
demonstrated using read_body.php.
SQL injection vulnerability in SquirrelMail before
1.4.3 RC1 permits remote attackers to execute unauthorized SQL
statements, with unknown impact, probably via abook_database.php.
Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities
in Squirrelmail 1.2.10 and earlier permit remote attackers to inject
arbitrary HTML or script via (1) the $mailer variable in
read_body.php, (2) the $senderNames_part variable in
mailbox_display.php, and possibly other vectors including (3) the
$event_title variable or (4) the $event_text variable.
For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been
fixed in version 1:1.2.6-1.4.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
2:1.4.3a-0.1 and earlier versions.
We recommend that you update your squirrelmail package.
