Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2002:204 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Updated squirrelmail packages close cross-site scripting vulnerabilities 2002-09-20 04:00:00 UTC

Description Gary Benson 2002-09-20 09:58:11 UTC
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 13:42:48 UTC
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....

Comment 3 Gary Benson 2002-09-20 15:25:17 UTC
Note that SquirrelMail 1.2.7 (at least as we ship it) was never vulnerable to
the fourth test.
