RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1490

Description

The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory RHSA-2009:1490. SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP. Form submissions in SquirrelMail did not implement protection against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. If a remote attacker tricked a user into visiting a malicious web page, the attacker could hijack that user's authentication, inject malicious content into that user's preferences, or possibly send mail without that user's permission. (CVE-2009-2964) Users of SquirrelMail should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct these issues.
