IceWarp Merak Mail Server < 9.0.0 BODY Element XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote webmail server is affected by a cross-site scripting
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running IceWarp Merak Mail Server - a webmail
server for Windows and Linux.

According to its banner, the version of IceWarp installed on the
remote host fails to properly sanitize email messages before
displaying them. If a user reads a specially crafted message, a
remote attacker could leverage this issue to inject arbitrary HTML
and script code into a user's browser to be executed within the
security context of the affected application.

Solution :

Upgrade to Icewarp Merak Mail Server version 9.0.0 or later as that
reportedly resolves the issue.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3

CVSS Temporal Score : 3.6
