Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by

- Post Variable Handling Vulnerabilities
Using specially-crafted POST requests, a possible hacker may
be able to set random variables in the file
'options_identities.php', which could lead to accessing
other users' preferences, cross-site scripting attacks,
and writing to arbitrary files.

Using a specially-crafted URL or email message, an
attacker may be able to exploit these flaws, stealing
cookie-based session identifiers and thereby hijacking
SquirrelMail sessions.
