WinGate IMAP Server Directory Traversal Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to create a directory in WinGate's main directory

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote IMAP server is prone to multiple directory traversal
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running WinGate, a Windows application
for managing and securing Internet access.

The version of WinGate installed on the remote host fails to remove
directory traversal sequences from the 'CREATE', 'SELECT', 'DELETE',
'RENAME', 'COPY', 'APPEND', and 'LIST' commands before using them to
access messages. An authenticated attacker may be able to exploit
this issue to read mail belong to other users and to create / rename /
delete arbitrary directories on the affected system.
