 Problem Description:
 
 A PHP remote file inclusion vulnerability in functions/plugin.php 
 in SquirrelMail 1.4.6 and earlier, if register_globals is enabled and 
 magic_quotes_gpc is disabled, allows remote attackers to execute
 arbitrary PHP code via a URL in the plugins array parameter.
 
 NOTE: this issue has been disputed by third parties, who state that
 Squirrelmail provides prominent warnings to the administrator when
 register_globals is enabled.
 
 Updated packages are patched to address these issues.
