The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the Horde Groupware
Webmail Edition version 1.0.1.

This is a bugfix release that also fixes an arbitrary file deletion
vulnerability exploitable by local system (not Horde) users on systems using
the example cron cleanup script, and cross site scripting vulnerabilities in
the language selection and the webmail interface.

Many thanks to the iDefense Vulnerability Contributor Program for reporting
the file deletion problem, and to the "Immerda Project Group"
(http://www.immmerda.ch) and Moritz Naumann (http://moritz-naumann.com/) for
reporting the webmail problems, and working with us to test the fixes.

Horde Groupware Webmail Edition is a free, enterprise ready, browser based
communication suite. Users can read, send and organize email messages and
