A SquirrelMail Security Advisory reports :

SquirrelMail 1.4.4 has been released to resolve a number of security issues disclosed below. It is strongly recommended that all running SquirrelMail prior to 1.4.4 upgrade to the latest release. Remote File Inclusion Manoel Zaninetti reported an issue in src/webmail.php which would allow a crafted URL to include a remote web page. This was assigned CAN-2005-0103 by the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures.
Cross Site Scripting Issues A possible cross site scripting issue exists in src/webmail.php that is only accessible when the PHP installation is running with register_globals set to On. This issue was uncovered internally by the SquirrelMail Development team. This isssue was assigned CAN-2005-0104 by the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures.

A second issue which was resolved in the 1.4.4-rc1 release was uncovered and assigned CAN-2004-1036 by the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures. This issue could allow a remote user to send a specially crafted header and cause execution of script (such as JavaScript) in the client browser. Local File Inclusion A possible local file inclusion issue was uncovered by one of our developers involving custom preference handlers. This issue is only active if the PHP installation is running with register_globals set to On.


Update the affected packages.
