[GLSA-200408-07] Horde-IMP: Input validation vulnerability for Internet Explorer users

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Horde-IMP: Input validation vulnerability for Internet Explorer users

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-07
(Horde-IMP: Input validation vulnerability for Internet Explorer users)


Horde-IMP fails to properly sanitize email messages that contain malicious
HTML or script code so that it is not safe for users of Internet Explorer
when using the inline MIME viewer for HTML messages.

Impact

By enticing a user to read a specially crafted e-mail, a possible hacker can
execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the victim's browser.
This could lead to a compromise of the user's webmail account, cookie
theft, etc.

Workaround

Do not use Internet Explorer to access Horde-IMP.
