Details

An updated Squirrelmail package that fixes several security issues is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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.

Jimmy Conner discovered a missing variable initialization in Squirrelmail.
This flaw could allow potential insecure file inclusions on servers where
the PHP setting "register_globals" is set to "On". This is not a default or
recommended setting. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0075 to this issue.

A URL sanitisation bug was found in Squirrelmail. This flaw could allow a
cross site scripting attack when loading the URL for the sidebar. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CAN-2005-0103 to this issue.

A missing variable initialization bug was found in Squirrelmail. This flaw
could allow a cross site scripting attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0104 to

Users of Squirrelmail are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains backported patches to correct these issues.
