Description Josh Bressers 2005-01-17 16:52:14 EST
Debian reported this to vendor-sec on 2005-01-15


A missing variable initialisation in functions/prefs.php allowed for
potential insecure file inclusions. Only environments where the PHP
setting register_globals is set to On are vulnerable.

Affected versions: SquirrelMail 1.4.3, 1.4.3a, 1.4.4-RC1
Fixed in: SquirrelMail 1.4.4

This vulnerability was discovered by SquirrelMail developer Jimmy

Currently the 1.4.4 release is planned for monday, as there still is
some translation stuff pending.

Please note that we do not have register_globals enabled by default, which
negates this issue.
