    Reports are emerging about a remote code execution hole in SquirrelMail version 1.4.22 and earlier.

    Apparently this was allocated CVE-2017-5181 but remains unresolved.

    Any thoughts from cPanel security team ? or should we disable the service pending release of a patch from upstream ?

    Hello @rpvw,

    It looks like the instance of SquirrelMail offered through cPanel isn't affected by this vulnerability because we don't use the Sendmail MTA:

    Code:
    grep useSendmail /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/config/config.php
    $useSendmail            = false;
    However, as mentioned, internal case CPANEL-12702 is open to assess that report and ensure the instance of SquirrelMail offered through cPanel is updated to patch against this vulnerability. Feel free to monitor our change logs to see when the resolution is included:

    Thank you.
