Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2011-07-18 07:43:20 UTC
These issues affect the versions of the squirrelmail package, as shipped with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.


These issues do not affect the version of the squirrelmail package, as present
within EPEL-6 repository. Relevant package update has been already performed.


These issues do not affect the versions of the squirrelmail package, as shipped
with Fedora release of 14 and 15. Squirrelmail package updates has been already
scheduled (squirrelmail-1.4.22-2.fc14, squirrelmail-1.4.22-2.fc15) and once
they have passed the required testing, they will be pushed to particular Fedora
stable repository.
