-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: squirrelmail security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:595-02 Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-595.html Issue date: 2005-08-03 Updated on: 2005-08-05 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux CVE Names: CAN-2005-2095 CAN-2005-1769 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary: An updated squirrelmail package that fixes two security issues is now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. [Updated 04 Aug 2005] The previous SquirrelMail package released with this errata contained a bug which rendered the addressbook unusable. The erratum has been updated with a package which corrects this issue. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - noarch Red Hat Desktop version 3 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - noarch 3. Problem description: SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP4. A bug was found in the way SquirrelMail handled the $_POST variable. If a user is tricked into visiting a malicious URL, the user's SquirrelMail preferences could be read or modified. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2005-2095 to this issue. Several cross-site scripting bugs were discovered in SquirrelMail. An attacker could inject arbitrary Javascript or HTML content into SquirrelMail pages by tricking a user into visiting a carefully crafted URL, or by sending them a carefully constructed HTML email message. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2005-1769 to this issue. All users of SquirrelMail should upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported patches that resolve these issues. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command: up2date For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/ Additionally, users will have to bring up the "Network Proxy" dialog and reset their keys for the settings to take place. 5.
