Version: 1.2.3+dfsg.1-1
Severity: important

The following vulnerability was published for roundcube.

| In Roundcube from versions 1.2.0 to 1.3.5, with the archive plugin
| enabled and configured, it's possible to exploit the unsanitized,
| user-controlled "_uid" parameter (in an archive.php
| _task=mail&_mbox=INBOX&_action=plugin.move2archive request) to perform
| an MX (IMAP) injection attack by placing an IMAP command after a %0d%0a
| sequence. NOTE: this is less easily exploitable in 1.3.4 and later
| because of a Same Origin Policy protection mechanism.

If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the
CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
