Red Hat: Updated squirrelmail package fixes several security issues

SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP. Form submissions in SquirrelMail did not implement protection against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. If a remote attacker tricked a user into visiting a malicious web page, the attacker could hijack that user’s authentication, inject malicious content into that user’s preferences, or possibly send mail without that user’s permission. Updated packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
