CAN-2005-2095 squirrelmail cross site posting issue
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:09 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #162275 +++
A new vulnerability has been discovered in SquirrelMail. The file
src/options_identities.php contained some very bad, legacy code: an
extract($_POST) was done, effectively allowing a malicious attacker to
change session variables and even other people's preferences.
It must be noted that for this to happen you need to trick someone into
using an external form to post the information which is not trivial.
This issue also affects FC3
Now public at http://www.squirrelmail.org/security/issue/2005-07-13
From User-Agent: XML-RPC
squirrelmail-1.4.6-0.cvs20050812.1.fc4 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue.
If these issues are still present in this version, then please re-open this bug.
