-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Debian Security Advisory DSA 662-2 Martin Schulze March 14th, 2005 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package : squirrelmail Vulnerability : several Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2005-0104 CAN-2005-0152 Debian Bug : 292714 295836 Andrew Archibald discovered that the last update to squirrelmail which was intended to fix several problems caused a regression which got exposed when the user hits a session timeout. For completeness below is the original advisory text: Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Squirrelmail, a commonly used webmail system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CAN-2005-0104 Upstream developers noticed that an unsanitised variable could lead to cross site scripting. CAN-2005-0152 Grant Hollingworth discovered that under certain circumstances URL manipulation could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of www-data. This problem only exists in version 1.2.6 of Squirrelmail. For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.6-3. The correction in the unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by this regression. 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.
