This Squirrelmail plugin came to my attention a few weeks back:

It's from 2004, which is suspect in itself, but I took a look
someone asked. It's pretty scary in there.

If I was to list the security problems I found after a few minutes
of looking, they are:

* It uses MD5 passwords

Going with this one since there's a good number of MD5 related CVE's

Please use CVE-2012-5623 for this issue.

Shouldn't this be a 2004 CVE, since it was fixed in 2004?

No, it's not fixed at all. The module would need a rather invasive rewrite
to "fix" this. I really just wanted a CVE ID as a warning of "don't use
this". 2004 is the last time it was updated :)
