The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


A SQL injection flaw was found in SquirrelMail version 1.4.2 and earlier. If SquirrelMail is configured to store user addressbooks in the database, a remote attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary SQL statements. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-0521 to this issue.

A number of cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws in SquirrelMail version 1.4.2 and earlier could allow remote attackers to execute scripts as other web users. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2004-0519 and CVE-2004-0520 to these issues.

This update includes the SquirrelMail version 1.4.3a which is not vulnerable to these issues.
