<p>
SquirrelMail fails to properly sanitize certain strings when decoding
specially-crafted headers.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="low">
<p>
By enticing a user to read a specially-crafted e-mail, 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.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All SquirrelMail users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=mail-client/squirrelmail-1.4.3a-r2&quot;</code>
<p>
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use
webapp-config to finalize the update.
