Description
===========
It was found that eGroupWare contains multiple code injection
vulnerabilities in multiple parameters and routes because of improper
input sanitization.

Impact
======
A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code, delete arbitrary files
or inject arbitrary PHP objects via multiple routes.

Workaround
==========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========
Gentoo has discontinued support for SquirrelMail and recommends that
users unmerge the package:

=C2=A0 # emerge --unmerge "www-apps/egroupware"
