IceWarp Merak Mail Server < 9.4.0 IMG Tag XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2012 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 is older than 9.4.0. Such versions reportedly fail to
sanitize input passed to 'IMG' HTML tags in an email message before
displaying them. 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.
