DESCRIPTION
 SquirrelMail[1] is a widely used webmail client for php4.
 
 Four vulnerabilities were discovered in SquirrelMail:
 
 Alvin Alex reported[2] that SquirrelMail 1.4.2 is prone to multiple
 cross-site scripting[3] attacks which could allow remote attackers to
 execute arbitrary script as other users and possibly steal
 authentication information via multiple attack vectors, including the
 mailbox parameter in compose.php.
 
 Roman Medina discovered[4] a cross-site scripting (XSS)
 vulnerability[5] in mime.php for SquirrelMail before 1.4.3 that
 allows remote attackers to insert arbitrary HTML and script code via
 the content-type mail header, as demonstrated using read_body.php.
 
 An SQL injection vulnerability[6] in SquirrelMail before 1.4.3 RC1
 allows remote attackers to execute unauthorized SQL statements, with
 unknown impact, probably via abook_database.php.
 
 Roman Medina also found[7] other multiple cross-site scripting (XSS)
 vulnerabilities[8] in SquirrelMail 1.2.10 and earlier that allows
 remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTML or script via (a) the
 $mailer variable in read_body.php, (b) the $senderNames_part variable
 in mailbox_display.php, and possibly other vectors including (c) the
 $event_title variable or (d) the $event_text variable.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all SquirrelMail users upgrade their
 packages.
