WorldMail IMAP Server Traversal Arbitrary Mail Spool Access
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20224
SynopsisThe remote IMAP server is affected by a directory traversal flaw.
DescriptionThe remote host is running Eudora WorldMail, a commercial mail server for Windows.
The IMAP server bundled with the version of WorldMail installed on the remote host fails to filter directory traversal sequences from mailbox names and fails to restrict access to mailboxes within its spool area. An authenticated attacker can exploit these issues to read and manage the messages of other users on the affected application as well as to move arbitrary folders on the affected system. Such attacks could result in the disclosure of sensitive information as well as affect the stability of the remote host itself.
SolutionUnknown at this time.
