Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in Woppoware PostMaster <= 4.2.2

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote webmail service is affected by multiple flaws.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of Woppoware Postmaster on the
remote host suffers from multiple vulnerabilities:

- An Authentication Bypass Vulnerability
A possible hacker can bypass authentication by supplying an
account name to the 'email' parameter of the
'message.htm' page. After this, the attacker can read
existing messages, compose new messages, etc as the
specified user.

- Information Disclosure Vulnerabilities
The application responds with different messages based
on whether or not an entered username is valid. It
also fails to sanitize the 'wmm' parameter used in
'message.htm', which could be exploited to conduct
directory traversal attacks and retrieve arbitrary
files from the remote host.

- A Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability
The 'email' parameter of the 'message.htm' page is
not sanitized of malicious input before use.
