The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200506-19
(SquirrelMail: Several XSS vulnerabilities)
SquirrelMail is vulnerable to several cross-site scripting issues,
most reported by Martijn Brinkers.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.

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.
