Bugs: #58020
ID: 200408-02

Synopsis
========

The SqWebMail web application, included in the Courier suite, is
vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Background
==========

Courier is an integrated mail and groupware server based on open
protocols. It provides ESMTP, IMAP, POP3, webmail, and mailing list
services within a single framework. The webmail functionality included
in Courier called SqWebMail allows you to access mailboxes from a web
browser.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 mail-mta/courier <= 0.45.6 >= 0.45.6.20040618

Description
===========

Luca Legato found that SqWebMail is vulnerable to a cross-site
scripting (XSS) attack. An XSS attack allows an attacker to insert
malicious code into a web-based application. SqWebMail doesn't filter
appropriately data coming from message headers before displaying them.

Impact
======

By sending a carefully crafted message, an attacker can inject and
execute script code in the victim's browser window. This allows to
modify the behaviour of the SqWebMail application, and/or leak session
information such as cookies to the attacker.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version of Courier.

Resolution
==========

All Courier users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=mail-mta/courier-0.45.6.20040618"
# emerge ">=mail-mta/courier-0.45.6.20040618"
