Squirrelmail cookie session hijacking
|squirrelmail-cookie-session-hijacking (45700)||Medium Risk|
Squirrelmail could allow a remote attacker to hijack a valid user's session, caused by the improper handling of insecure cookies. By persuading a victim to visit a Web site that fails to set session cookies with a secure flag, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to hijack the victim's HTTP session and possibly launch further attacks on the vulnerable system.
Upgrade to the latest version of SquirrelMail (1.4.16 or later), available from the SquirrelMail Web site. See References.
