    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squirrelmail, a
    commonly used webmail system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CAN-2005-1769
    
        Martijn Brinkers discovered cross-site scripting vulnerabilities
        that allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML
        in the URL and e-mail messages.
    
    CAN-2005-2095
    
        James Bercegay of GulfTech Security discovered a vulnerability in
        the variable handling which could lead to attackers altering other
        people's preferences and possibly reading them, writing files at
        any location writable for www-data and cross site scripting.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.6-4.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.4-6sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.4-6sarge1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
