Macallan IMAP Server Directory Traversal Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for a directory traversal vulnerability in Macallan

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote IMAP server is affected by directory traversal
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running Macallan Mail Solution, a mail server for
Windows.

The IMAP server bundled with the version of Macallan installed on the
remote host fails to filter directory traversal sequences from mailbox
names passed to the 'CREATE', 'DELETE, 'RENAME', and 'SELECT'
commands. An authenticated attacker can exploit these issues to gain
access to sensitive information and more generally to manipulate
arbitrary directories on the affected host.

Note that the software's IMAP server is part of the MCPop3 service,
which runs with LOCAL SYSTEM rights.
