Resource Management Errors
functions/imap_general.php in SquirrelMail before 1.4.21 does not properly handle 8-bit characters in passwords, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (disk consumption) by making many IMAP login attempts with different usernames, leading to the creation of many preferences files.
CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category can lead to unexpected software behavior, loss of access, file modification, sensitive information disclosure, system crash, denial of service, and code execution.
