Description Gary Benson 2002-12-06 11:28:49 UTC
An incomplete fix for a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in SquirrelMail
1.2.8 calls the strip_tags function on the PHP_SELF value but does not save the
result back to that variable, leaving it open to cross-site scripting attacks.

This bug has been designated CAN-2002-1276.

No (check the CVE's).
