Package name squirrelmail
Date June 14th, 2006
Advisory ID MDKSA-2006:101
Affected versions CS3.0
Synopsis Updated squirrelmail packages fix vulnerabilities

Problem Description

A PHP remote file inclusion vulnerability in functions/plugin.php
in SquirrelMail 1.4.6 and earlier, if register_globals is enabled and
magic_quotes_gpc is disabled, allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary PHP code via a URL in the plugins array parameter.

NOTE: this issue has been disputed by third parties, who state that
Squirrelmail provides prominent warnings to the administrator when
register_globals is enabled.

Updated packages are patched to address these issues.
