Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-13 15:20:59 EDT
We, the SquirrelMail project, plan on publicizing the attached patch
upcoming Wednesday, June 15th 2005. We're sending it here to give you
some advance notice to prepare for this if you want to. Sorry for the
short notice but this was mainly caused by the finding of some
additional issues.

- It contains fixes for several cross site scripting attacks, most by
URL manipulation, and some by sending a specially crafted HTML email.
- The attached patch is tentative; further testing or further revealed
issues may warrant changes between now and the release.
- The patch is made against the 1.4.4-release version of SquirrelMail.
- Please do not disclose information about this vulnerability until
- Credits to many of the findings go to Martijn Brinkers.

Comment 8 Jimmy Cho 2005-08-03 23:24:29 EDT
There is a problem with the patch file

the  line

$abook-error =  htmlspecialchars($abook_error);

should be

$abook->error =  htmlspecialchars($abook_error);
Comment 9 Josh Bressers 2005-08-04 00:12:56 EDT

If you can roll up some new packages without the typo ASAP.  It seems this bug
breaks all addressbooks in squirrelmail.

This type came from upstream, they fixed it without telling anyone.
Comment 10 Jindrich Novy 2005-08-04 03:50:09 EDT

packages with the fixed patch are now added.
