Medium Nessus Plugin ID 35935


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Secunia reports :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in RoundCube Webmail, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system and by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks and compromise a vulnerable system.

The HTML 'background' attribute within e.g. HTML emails is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site if a malicious email is viewed.

Input passed via a vCard is not properly sanitised before being used in a call to 'preg_replace()' with the 'e' modifier in program/include/rcube_vcard.php. This can be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary PHP code by e.g. tricking a user into importing a malicious vCard file.


Update the affected package.
