0x06 – NetWin Surgemail XSS

Application    NetWin Surgemail 4.3e
Vendor         NetWin – http://netwinsite.com

Discovered by  Kerem Kocaer <kerem.kocaer@bitsec.com>

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the Surgemail webmail login page
(/surgemail) allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

Input passed to the “username_ex” parameter is not properly sanitised before
being returned to the user, therefore enabling the execution of arbitrary
script code in a user’s browser session, which can lead to cookie theft and
session hijacking.

The vulnerability is confirmed to exist in version 4.3e (latest version at
the date of vulnerability discovery). Previous versions may also be vulnerable.

(tested on Firefox)


The vendor has reported fixing the problem in version 4.3g.
