Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2002:204 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Updated squirrelmail packages close cross-site scripting vulnerabilities 2002-09-20 00:00:00 EDT

  None (edit)
Description Gary Benson 2002-09-20 05:58:11 EDT
Description of Problem:
SquirrelMail 1.2.7 is vulnerable to a number of cross-site scripting attacks
that were fixed in 1.2.8.

Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2002-09-20 09:42:48 EDT
An errata upgrade to 1.2.8 (rather than a backport of the XSS fixes from 1.2.8
to 1.2.7) would be nice, since 1.2.8 also removes the need for register_globals....

Note that SquirrelMail 1.2.7 (at least as we ship it) was never vulnerable to
the fourth test.
