AXIGEN Webmail < 7.1.0 HTML Body Script Insertion

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of AXIGEN Webmail running on the remote host is earlier
than 7.1.0. Such versions fail to fully sanitize text in the body of
email messages. If an attacker can trick a user into opening a
specially crafted message using the affected webmail application, this
can be leveraged to inject malicious HTML and script code into
the user's browser, to be executed within the security context of the
affected site.
