IMP Content-Type Header XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 George A. Theall


Synopsis :

The remote web server is hosting a PHP application that is affected by
a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote server is running at least one instance of IMP whose
version number is between 2.0 and 3.2.3 inclusive. Such versions are
vulnerable to a cross-scripting attack whereby an attacker may be
able to cause a victim to unknowingly run arbitrary JavaScript code
simply by reading a MIME message with a specially crafted Content-Type
header.

Note : Nessus has determined the vulnerability exists on the target
simply by looking at the version number of IMP installed there; it has
not attempted to actually exploit the vulnerability.
