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:

  CAN-2005-0104

      Upstream developers noticed that an unsanitised variable could
      lead to cross site scripting.

  CAN-2005-0152

      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.

        will fetch the file for you

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
