Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in FTGate <= 4.4.002
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote mail server is affected by multiple flaws.
The remote host appears to be running a version of FTGate, a
commercial groupware mail server for Windows from FTGate Technology
The web server used to administer FTGate on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'href' parameter of the 'index.fts' script
before using it to generate dynamic content. An unauthenticated
attacker can leverage this flaw to inject arbitrary HTML and script
code into a user's browser, to be evaluated within the security
context of the affected application.
In addition, there reportedly is a buffer overflow vulnerability in
the web server as well as several format string vulnerabilities in the
accompanying IMAP and POP3 services. An unauthenticated attacker may
be able to exploit these issues to execute code on the affected host.
