Two new security patches are available for Debian GNU/Linux:Squirrelmail
Several cross site scripting vulnerabilities have been found in squirrelmail, a feature-rich webmail package written in PHP4. These problems have been fixed in version 1.2.6-1.1 the current stable distribution (woody) and in version 1.2.8-1.1 for the unstable distribution (sid). The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected since it doesn't contain a squirrelmail package.Read moreWindow Maker
Al Viro found a problem in the image handling code use in Window Maker, a popular NEXTSTEP like window manager. When creating an image it would allocate a buffer by multiplying the image width and height, but did not check for an overflow. This makes it possible to overflow the buffer. This could be exploited by using specially crafted image files (for example when previewing themes).
This problem has been fixed in version 0.80.0-4.1 for the current stable distribution (woody). Packages for the mipsel architecture are not yet available.Read more
