IlohaMail read_message.php Attachment Multiple Field XSS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 18050


The remote web server contains a PHP application that is subject to cross-site scripting attacks.


Based on its version number, the installation of IlohaMail on the remote host does not properly sanitize attachment file names, MIME media types, and HTML / text email messages. An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a specially crafted message to a user which, when read using an affected version of IlohaMail, will allow the attacker to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in the user's browser within the context of the affected website.


Upgrade to IlohaMail version 0.8.14-rc3 or newer.
