MailMarshal tar Archive Traversal Arbitrary File Overwrite

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a program that is prone to a directory
traversal attack.

Description :

The remote host is running MailMarshal, a mail server for Windows.

According to the registry, the installation of MailMarshal on the
remote Windows host fails to properly sanitize file names when
unpacking tar files. A remote attacker may be able to leverage this
issue to overwrite files and execute arbitrary code. Further, since
the application operates with SYSTEM privileges, this could lead to a
complete compromise of the affected system.
