Description

SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP.

A dynamic variable evaluation flaw was found in SquirrelMail. Users who have an account on a SquirrelMail server and are logged in could use this flaw to overwrite variables which may allow them to read or write other users' preferences or attachments. (CVE-2006-4019)

Users of SquirrelMail should upgrade to this erratum package, which contains SquirrelMail 1.4.8 to correct this issue. This package also contains a number of additional patches to correct various bugs.
