    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.

      its next update.
