    Vulnerability  : design error
    Problem type   : remote

    It was discovered that roundcube, a skinnable AJAX based webmail
    solution for IMAP servers, does not properly sanitize the _session
    parameter in steps/utils/save_pref.inc during saving preferences. The
    vulnerability can be exploited to overwrite configuration settings and
    subsequently allowing random file access, manipulated SQL queries and
    even code execution.
    
    roundcube in the oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected by
    this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.7.2-9+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your roundcube packages.
