    Synopsis
    ========

    Squirrelmail is vulnerable to several cross-site scripting
    vulnerabilities which could lead to a compromise of webmail accounts.

    Background
    ==========

    SquirrelMail is a webmail package written in PHP. It supports IMAP and
    SMTP protocols.

    Affected packages
    =================

        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
      1 mail-client/squirrelmail < 1.4.4 >= 1.4.4
                                                                   < 1.4.0

    Description
    ===========

    SquirrelMail is vulnerable to several cross-site scripting issues, most
    reported by Martijn Brinkers.

    Impact
    ======

    By enticing a user to read a specially-crafted e-mail or using a
    manipulated URL, an attacker can execute arbitrary scripts running in
    the context of the victim's browser. This could lead to a compromise of
    the user's webmail account, cookie theft, etc.

    Workaround
    ==========

    There is no known workaround at this time.

    Resolution
    ==========

    All SquirrelMail users should upgrade to the latest version:

        # emerge --sync
        # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/squirrelmail-1.4.4"

    Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use
    webapp-config to finalize the update.
