WinGate IMAP Server Directory Traversal Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22022
SynopsisThe remote IMAP server is prone to multiple directory traversal vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote host appears to be running WinGate, a Windows application for managing and securing Internet access.
The version of WinGate installed on the remote host fails to remove directory traversal sequences from the 'CREATE', 'SELECT', 'DELETE', 'RENAME', 'COPY', 'APPEND', and 'LIST' commands before using them to access messages. An authenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to read mail belong to other users and to create / rename / delete arbitrary directories on the affected system.
SolutionUpgrade to WinGate 6.1.4 Build 1099 or later.
