The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200411-25
(SquirrelMail: Encoded text XSS vulnerability)
SquirrelMail fails to properly sanitize certain strings when decoding
specially crafted headers.
By enticing a user to read a specially crafted e-mail, 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.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=mail-client/squirrelmail-1.4.3a-r2'
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use
webapp-config to finalize the update.
