SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP4.

Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-2095 to this issue.

Several cross-site scripting bugs were discovered in SquirrelMail. An
attacker could inject arbitrary Javascript or HTML content into
SquirrelMail pages by tricking a user into visiting a carefully crafted

All users of SquirrelMail should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches that resolve these issues.
