Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A new squirrelmail package that fixes security issues is now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

Several cross-site scripting bugs were discovered in SquirrelMail. An
attacker could inject arbitrary Javascript or HTML content into
SquirrelMail pages by tricking a user into visiting a carefully crafted
URL. (CVE-2006-6142)

Users of SquirrelMail should upgrade to this erratum package, which
contains a backported patch to correct these issues.

- After installing this update, users are advised to restart their
httpd service to ensure that the updated version functions correctly.
- config.php should NOT be modified, please modify config_local.php
- Known Bug: The configuration generator may potentially produce bad
options that interfere with the operation of this application. Applying
specific config changes to config_local.php manually is recommended.
