Medium Nessus Plugin ID 14563
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-07 (Horde-IMP: Input validation vulnerability for Internet Explorer users)
Horde-IMP fails to properly sanitize email messages that contain malicious HTML or script code so that it is not safe for users of Internet Explorer when using the inline MIME viewer for HTML messages.
By enticing a user to read a specially crafted e-mail, an attacker can execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the victim's browser. This could lead to a compromise of the user's webmail account, cookie theft, etc.
Do not use Internet Explorer to access Horde-IMP.
SolutionAll Horde-IMP users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=www-apps/horde-imp-3.2.5' # emerge '>=www-apps/horde-imp-3.2.5'
