IronWebMail Pathname Reference Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to read a local file via IronWebMail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server is prone to a directory traversal vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host appears to be an IronMail appliance, which is intended
to protect enterprise-class email servers from spam, viruses, and
hackers.

The webmail component of the remote IronMail device does not properly
validate pathname references included in a URL before using them to
return the contents of files on the remote host. An unauthenticated
attacker can leverage this flaw to read arbitrary files and
directories on the remote host.
