IceWarp lang_settings Remote File Include Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file using IceWarp

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to
remote file include attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running IceWarp Web Mail, a webmail product written
in PHP that is distributed as a standalone application and also
bundled with VisNetic Mail Server and Merak Mail Server.

The version of IceWarp Web Mail installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'lang_settings' parameter of the
'accounts/inc/include.php' and 'admin/inc/include.php' scripts before
using it to include PHP code. An unauthenticated attacker may be able
to exploit these flaws to view arbitrary files on the remote host or
to execute arbitrary PHP code, for example, after injecting it into
the mail server's log file.

Solution :

Upgrade to IceWarp Web Mail 5.6.1 / Merak Mail Server 8.3.8.r /
VisNetic Mail Server or later.

Network Security Threat Level:

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.3
