Michal Hlavinka discovered that the fix for code execution in the
map_yp_alias function, known as CVE-2009-1579 and released in DSA 1802-1,
was incomplete. This update corrects the fix for that function.

For the old stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.9a-5.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.15-4+lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.19-1

We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
