Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
An updated SquirrelMail package that fixes a cross-site scripting
vulnerability is now available.
SquirrelMail is a webmail package written in PHP.
A cross-site scripting bug has been found in SquirrelMail. This issue
could permit a possible hacker to send a mail with a carefully crafted header,
which could result in causing the victim's machine to execute a malicious
script. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the
name CVE-2004-1036 to this issue.
Additionally, the following issues have been addressed:
- updated splash screens
- HIGASHIYAMA Masato's patch to improve Japanese support
- real 1.4.3a tarball
- config_local.php and default_pref in /etc/squirrelmail/ to match upstream
Please note that it is possible that upgrading to this package may remove
your SquirrelMail configuration files due to a bug in the RPM package.
Upgrading will prevent this from happening in the future.
Users of SquirrelMail are advised to upgrade to this updated package which
contains a patched version of SquirrelMail version 1.43a and is not
vulnerable to these issues.
