SquirrelMail base_uri Parameter Information Disclosure Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to change path parameter used by SquirrelMail cookies

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by an
information disclosure issue.

Description :

The version of SquirrelMail installed on the remote fails to check the
origin of the 'base_uri' parameter in the 'functions/strings.php'
script before using it to set the path for its cookies. A possible hacker
may be able to leverage this issue to steal cookies associated with
the affected application provided he has control of a malicious site
within the same domain and PHP's 'register_globals' setting is
enabled.
