Package        : squirrelmail
Vulnerability  : variable overwriting
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4019

James Bercegay of GulfTech Security Research disovered a vulnerability
in SquirrelMail where an authenticated user could overwrite random
variables in the compose script. This might be exploited to read or
write the preferences or attachment files of other users.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.4-9.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.8-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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.
