Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squirrelmail, a
commonly used webmail system. The Common Vulnerabilities and

Martijn Brinkers discovered cross-site scripting vulnerabilities
that permit remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML
in the URL and e-mail messages.
James Bercegay of GulfTech Security discovered a vulnerability in
the variable handling which could lead to attackers altering other
people's preferences and possibly reading them, writing files at
any location writable for www-data and cross site scripting.
For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
