  <synopsis>
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in SquirrelMail, allowing for
    the remote execution of arbitrary code.

    <p>
    SquirrelMail is a webmail package written in PHP. It supports IMAP and
    SMTP protocols.
    </p>

  <description>
    <p>
    The functions deletekey(), gpg_check_sign_pgp_mime() and gpg_recv_key()
    used in the SquirrelMail G/PGP encryption plugin do not properly escape
    user-supplied data.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="high">
    <p>
    An authenticated user could use the plugin to execute arbitrary code on
    the server, or a remote attacker could send a specially crafted e-mail
    to a SquirrelMail user, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary
    code with the privileges of the user running the underlying web server.
    Note that the G/PGP plugin is disabled by default.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    Enter the SquirrelMail configuration directory
    (/usr/share/webapps/squirrelmail/version/htdocs/config), then execute
    the conf.pl script. Select the plugins menu, then select the gpg plugin
    item number in the "Installed Plugins" list to disable it. Press S to
    save your changes, then Q to quit.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All SquirrelMail users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=mail-client/squirrelmail-1.4.10a-r2"</code>
  </resolution>
