Package : squirrelmail
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-1262

It was discovered that the webmail package Squirrelmail performs
insufficient sanitising inside the HTML filter, which allows the
injection of arbitrary web script code during the display of HTML
email messages.

For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.4-11.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.9a-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.10a-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
