Scientific Linux Security Update : squirrelmail on SL5.x, SL4.x, SL3.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60185


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.


Several HTML filtering bugs were discovered in SquirrelMail. An attacker could inject arbitrary JavaScript leading to cross-site scripting attacks by sending an e-mail viewed by a user within SquirrelMail. (CVE-2007-1262)

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.


Update the affected squirrelmail package.
