MDaemon WorldClient < 12.5.7 Multiple Cross-site Scripting Vulnerabilities

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


Synopsis :

The remote webmail client is affected by multiple cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of MDaemon's WorldClient is
earlier than 12.5.7 and is, therefore, affected by the following
cross-site scripting vulnerabilities :

- Input supplied in body of an email is not properly
sanitized before being presented to the user. Specially
crafted email messages that can exploit this error
contain CSS expression properties with comments inside
'STYLE' attributes inside either image or other
elements. Another method is to use the 'innerHTML'
attribute in XML documents. This is a persistent
cross-site scripting issue. (CVE-2012-2584)

- Input supplied via unspecified vectors is not properly
sanitized before being presented to the user.
