MDaemon WorldClient < 12.0.3 Summary Page Email Subject XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote webmail client has a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of MDaemon's WorldClient webmail
client running on this port is earlier than 12.0.3. The LookOut theme
in such versions reportedly may interpret JavaScript in a message
subject in the Summary view.

By sending a specially crafted email to a user who reads mail through
the affected webmail client, a remote attacker may be able to exploit
this issue to inject arbitrary HTML script code into the user's
browser to be executed in the security context of the affected
application.
