NeoMail Session Id Validation Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for session id validation vulnerability in NeoMail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a Perl application that is affected by
an access validation failure.

Description :

The remote host is running NeoMail, an open-source webmail application
written in Perl.

The installed version of this software fails to validate the
'sessionid' parameter in the 'neomail-prefs.pl' script as a valid
session identifier. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to
exploit this issue to create or delete arbitrary mail-folder files on
the affected host subject to the permissions of the group id under
which the affected application operates.

Note that successful exploitation requires that '$homedirfolders' and
'$homedirspools' both be set to 'no' in NeoMail's configuration.
