PACKAGE   : squirrelmail
SUMMARY   : Fix for a cross site scripting vulnerability
DATE      : 2004-12-02 11:09:00
ID        : CLA-2004:905
RELEVANT

DESCRIPTION
 SquirrelMail[1] is a widely used webmail client for php4.
 
 Joost Pol noticed[2] that SquirrelMail is prone to a cross site
 scripting issue in the decoding of encoded text in certain headers.
 SquirrelMail correctly decodes the specially crafted header, but
 doesn't sanitize the result.


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