Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-07-12 14:18:51 UTC
It was found that SquirrelMail webmail client did not properly handle generation of a particular web page HTML Header in cases, when entire application was loaded in separated HTML frame, potentially overloading other HTML elements on top of SquirrelMail's user interface. A remote attacker could use this flaw to obtain access to sensitive user data (passwords for example).
