    Package        : squirrelmail
    Vulnerability  : variable overwriting
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4019
    
    James Bercegay of GulfTech Security Research disovered a vulnerability
    in SquirrelMail where an authenticated user could overwrite random
    variables in the compose script. This might be exploited to read or
    write the preferences or attachment files of other users.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.4-9.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.8-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
