    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 1.2.6-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) the problem that affects unstable
    has been fixed in version 1.4.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
