    Package        : squirrelmail
    Vulnerability  : cross site scripting
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1341
    BugTraq Id     : 6302
    
    A cross site scripting vulnerability has been discovered in
    squirrelmail, a feature-rich webmail package written in PHP4.
    Squirrelmail doesn't sanitize user provided variables in all places,
    leaving it vulnerable to a cross site scripting attack.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 1.2.6-1.3.  The old stable distribution (potato) is
    not affected since it doesn't contain a squirrelmail package.
    
    An updated package for the current unstable distribution (sid) is
    expected soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next revision.
