Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the squirrelmail packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated squirrelmail package that fixes three security and many other
bug issues is now available. This update contains bug fixes of upstream
squirrelmail 1.4.6 with some additional improvements to international
language support.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP4.

A bug was found in the way SquirrelMail presents the right frame to the
user. If a user can be tricked into opening a carefully crafted URL, it is
possible to present the user with arbitrary HTML data. (CVE-2006-0188)

A bug was found in the way SquirrelMail filters incoming HTML email. It is
possible to cause a victim's web browser to request remote content by
opening a HTML email while running a web browser that processes certain
types of invalid style sheets. Only Internet Explorer is known to process
such malformed style sheets. (CVE-2006-0195)

A bug was found in the way SquirrelMail processes a request to select an
IMAP mailbox. If a user can be tricked into opening a carefully crafted
URL, it is possible to execute arbitrary IMAP commands as the user viewing
their mail with SquirrelMail. (CVE-2006-0377)

Users of SquirrelMail are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains SquirrelMail version 1.4.6 and is not vulnerable to these issues.
