    Package        : squirrelmail
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0104 CAN-2005-0152
    Debian Bug     : 292714 295836
    Andrew Archibald discovered that the last update to squirrelmail which
    was intended to fix several problems caused a regression which got
    exposed when the user hits a session timeout.  For completeness below
    is the original advisory text:
      Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squirrelmail, a
      commonly used webmail system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
      Exposures project identifies the following problems:
          Upstream developers noticed that an unsanitised variable could
          lead to cross site scripting.
          Grant Hollingworth discovered that under certain circumstances URL
          manipulation could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with
          the privileges of www-data.  This problem only exists in version
          1.2.6 of Squirrelmail.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.6-3.
    The correction in the unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by
    this regression.
    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.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
