scripting attacks by sending an e-mail viewed by a user within
Squirrelmail did not sufficiently check arguments to IMG tags in HTML
e-mail messages. This could be exploited by an attacker by sending
arbitrary e-mail messages on behalf of a squirrelmail user tricked
into opening a maliciously crafted HTML e-mail message.
Users of SquirrelMail should upgrade to this erratum package, which
contains a backported patch to correct these issues.
