Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-07
(Horde-IMP: Input validation vulnerability for Internet Explorer users)

Horde-IMP fails to properly sanitize email messages that contain
malicious HTML or script code so that it is not safe for users of
Internet Explorer when using the inline MIME viewer for HTML messages.

Impact :

By enticing a user to read a specially crafted e-mail, an attacker can
execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the victim's
browser. This could lead to a compromise of the user's webmail account,
cookie theft, etc.

Workaround :

Do not use Internet Explorer to access Horde-IMP.
