Description

Jakob Balle discovered that with "Conditional Comments" in Internet Explorer it is possible to hide javascript code in comments that will be executed when the browser views a malicious email via sqwebmail. Successful exploitation requires that the user is using Internet Explorer.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.37.3-2.7.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 0.47-4sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.47-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your sqwebmail package.
