[vox] Semi-OT: SquirrelMail and MSIE,[Fwd: RE: [SM-DEVEL] bugtraq issue.]


I know several people on this list use SM, but of those people who use SM
(SquirrelMail) I would expect very few use MSIE to browse their SM mail.
As a result, this message is probably a bit off topic, but here goes....

There is apparently an issue with MSIE, JavaScript, and several
WebMail-based packages where there is risk for XSS and end-client
executing JavaScript that is usually filtered out by SM.

A general post was made to BUGTRAQ about this as a risk with various
webmail based systems. It turns out that SquirrelMail is among those that
seemed to have problems with MSIE. (Or should I say that MSIE has a
problem and SM was not writte in such a way to fix some mistakes made by
MS in making MSIE.)

Anyway, a diff patch was published on the SM-Dev list, but it is not
available on their website. (This patch is for 1.4.2.)

> Ok. So the questions that would likely be asked by others:
> Will this feature addition to cope with a vendor specific addition for
scripting be considered sugnificant enough to push for a new immediate
stable release (1.4.2b, or 1.4.3)?
> If not, will an immediate official patch be offered for 1.4.2 as a
temporary measure for SM admins that are afflicted with MSIE users?

Attached is a patch from 1.4.2 to the latest and greatest.  Konstantin rocks.
