Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-662-2 squirrelmail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Andrew Archibald discovered that the last update to squirrelmail which
was intended to fix several problems caused a regression which got
exposed when the user hits a session timeout.  For completeness below
is the original advisory text:
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squirrelmail, a
commonly used webmail system. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Upstream developers noticed that an unsanitised variable could
lead to cross site scripting.
Grant Hollingworth discovered that under certain circumstances URL
manipulation could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with
the rights of www-data. This problem only exists in version
1.2.6 of Squirrelmail.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.6-3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) the problem that affects unstable
has been fixed in version 1.4.4-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
