SquirrelMail several vulnerabilities

Security issues have been fixed in Squirrelmail: CRLF injection, cross-site scripting, arbitrary web page injection (a bit different XSS). Upstream version 1.4.6 solves these problems among other bugs.

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 4
Name : squirrelmail
Version : 1.4.6
Release : 1.fc4
Summary : SquirrelMail webmail client
Description :
SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP4. It
includes built-in pure PHP support for the IMAP and SMTP protocols, and
all pages render in pure HTML 4.0 (with no Javascript) for maximum
compatibility across browsers. It has very few requirements and is very
easy to configure and install. SquirrelMail has all the functionality
you would want from an email client, including strong MIME support,
address books, and folder manipulation.

Update Information:

Upgrade to version upstream 1.4.6 which solves these issues
in addition to several bugs.
More details here.

Additionally Fedora's package contains fixes that may
improve usability of squirrelmail in various non-English
languages. Please report to Bug #162852 if this update
causes any regressions in non-English language behavior.
* Wed Mar 1 2006 David Woodhouse 1.4.6-1
- Upgrade to 1.4.6 proper for CVE-2006-0377 CVE-2006-0195 CVE-2006-0188
- Script the charset changes instead of using a patch
- Convert the ko_KR files to UTF-8, dropping invalid characters from
what's theoretically supposed to be EUC-KR in the original.
* Tue Jan 17 2006 Warren Togami 1.4.6-0.cvs20050812.3
- do not remove mo files
- require php-mbstring
* Fri Dec 9 2005 Jesse Keating
- rebuilt
* Mon Sep 12 2005 David Woodhouse 1.4.6-0.cvs20050812.2
- Convert all locales to UTF-8 instead of legacy character sets to
work around bug #162852. Except for ko_KR, because iconv doesn't
believe its help files are actually in EUC-KR as claimed.
