Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:049 http://www.mandriva.com/security/

Package : squirrelmail Date : February 27, 2006 Affected: Corporate 3.0

Problem Description:

Webmail.php in SquirrelMail 1.4.0 to 1.4.5 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web pages into the right frame via a URL in the right_frame parameter. NOTE: this has been called a cross-site scripting (XSS) issue, but it is different than what is normally identified as XSS. (CVE-2006-0188)

Interpretation conflict in the MagicHTML filter in SquirrelMail 1.4.0 to 1.4.5 allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via style sheet specifiers with invalid (1) "/" and "/" comments, or (2) a newline in a "url" specifier, which is processed by certain web browsers including Internet Explorer. (CVE-2006-0195)

CRLF injection vulnerability in SquirrelMail 1.4.0 to 1.4.5 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary IMAP commands via newline characters in the mailbox parameter of the sqimap_mailbox_select command, aka "IMAP injection." (CVE-2006-0377)

Updated packages are patched to address these issues.
