Alt-N WebAdmin < 3.0.3 Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2572


The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


The remote host is running Alt-N WebAdmin, a web interface to the MDaemon mail server. The remote version of this software is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting vulnerability due to a lack of filtering on user-supplied input in the file 'useredit_account.wdm' and the file 'modalframe.wdm'. An attacker may exploit this flaw to steal user credentials. This software is also vulnerable to an access bypass vulnerability in the file 'useredit_account.wdm'. An attacker may exploit this flaw to modify user account information. An attacker need a valid email account on the server to exploit both vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to WebAdmin 3.0.3 or higher.
