Status comment: Fix here: https://github.com/roundcube/roundcubemail/commit/9dc276d5f26042db02754fa1bac6fbd683c6d596 => Fixed upstream in 1.4.11

Comment 2 Marc Krämer 2021-02-21 11:16:22 CET
currently there is no new release for 1.3 branch. I don't see why we should still support the old 1.3 branch and not switching to the 1.4 branch in mga7.

An Update for mga8 is currently building and located in updates_testing.
Comment 3 Marc Krämer 2021-02-22 20:51:38 CET
Updated roundcube packages fix security vulnerabilities:

This update fixes cross-site scripting (XSS) via HTML messages with malicious CSS content.

The Mageia 8 update probably needs to be re-pushed if updates_testing was wiped as usual.
