CVE-2020-12670

MEDIUM
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

XSS exists in Webmin 1.941 and earlier affecting the Save function of the Read User Email Module / mailboxes Endpoint when attempting to save HTML emails. This module parses any output without sanitizing SCRIPT elements, as opposed to the View function, which sanitizes the input correctly. A malicious user can send any JavaScript payload into the message body and execute it if the user decides to save that email.
