Description

Ivan Markovic discovered that SquirrelMail, a webmail application, did not sufficiently sanitise incoming HTML email, allowing an attacker to perform cross site scripting through sending a malicious HTML email.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.9a-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.15-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
