Package        : squirrelmail
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CAN-2005-1769 CAN-2005-2095
Debian Bug     : 314374 317094

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squirrelmail, a
commonly used webmail system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CAN-2005-1769

    Martijn Brinkers discovered cross-site scripting vulnerabilities
    that allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML
    in the URL and e-mail messages.

CAN-2005-2095

    James Bercegay of GulfTech Security discovered a vulnerability in
    the variable handling which could lead to attackers altering other
    people's preferences and possibly reading them, writing files at
    any location writable for www-data and cross site scripting.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.6-4.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.4-6sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.4-6sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
