Description Tomas Hoger 2008-12-01 08:55:11 UTC
SquirrelMail upstream reports:

Ivan Markovic discovered a cross site scripting issue in SquirrelMail.
Vulnerable is at least 1.4.16, 15 and probably all earlier 1.4.x versions.
It is possible to trigger this by sending a malicious HTML email message
to a user who has the Show HTML Version setting turned on.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-12-01 08:57:39 UTC
This issue also affects users that do not have "Show HTML Version by Default" enabled, but select "View" action on specially crafted HTML attachment.

Public now via:
  http://secunia.com/advisories/32143/

Fixed upstream in 1.4.17 (quoting ReleaseNotes):
  An issue was fixed that allowed an attacker to send specially-
  crafted hyperlinks in a message that could execute cross-site
  scripting (XSS) when the user viewed the message in SquirrelMail.

  We would like to thank Secunia Research for reporting this issue
  to us. It is tracked as CVE-2008-2379.
