    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squirrelmail, a
    commonly used webmail system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2006-0188
    
        Martijn Brinkers and Ben Maurer found a flaw in webmail.php that
        allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web pages into the right
        frame via a URL in the right_frame parameter.
    
    CVE-2006-0195
    
        Martijn Brinkers and Scott Hughes discovered an interpretation
        conflict in the MagicHTML filter that allows remote attackers to
        conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via style sheet
        specifiers with invalid (1) "/*" and "*/" comments, or (2) slashes
        inside the "url" keyword, which is processed by some web browsers
        including Internet Explorer.
    
    CVE-2006-0377
    
        Vicente Aguilera of Internet Security Auditors, S.L. discovered a
        CRLF injection vulnerability, which allows remote attackers to
        inject arbitrary IMAP commands via newline characters in the mailbox
        parameter of the sqimap_mailbox_select command, aka "IMAP
        injection." There's no known way to exploit this yet.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.6-5.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:1.4.4-8.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:1.4.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
