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.
This issue also affects users that do not have "Show HTML Version by Default" enabled, but select "View" action on specially crafted HTML attachment.
