Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: SquirrelMail: Several XSS vulnerabilities (GLSA 200506-19)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 21, 2005
Bug(s): #95937
ID: 200506-19

Synopsis

Squirrelmail is vulnerable to several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities which could lead to a compromise of webmail accounts.

Background

SquirrelMail is a webmail package written in PHP. It supports IMAP and SMTP protocols.

Affected Packages

Package: mail-client/squirrelmail
Vulnerable: < 1.4.4
Unaffected: >= 1.4.4
Unaffected: < 1.4.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

SquirrelMail is vulnerable to several cross-site scripting issues, most reported by Martijn Brinkers.

Impact

By enticing a user to read a specially-crafted e-mail or using a manipulated URL, an attacker can execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the victim's browser. This could lead to a compromise of the user's webmail account, cookie theft, etc.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All SquirrelMail users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/squirrelmail-1.4.4"
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use webapp-config to finalize the update.
