-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 Advisory ID: SYSS-2020-037 Product: MailDepot Manufacturer: REDDOXX GmbH Affected Version(s): 2033 (2.3.3022) Tested Version(s): 2033 (2.3.3022) Vulnerability Type: Persistent Cross-site Scripting (CWE-79) Risk Level: High Solution Status: Open Manufacturer Notification: 2020-10-01 Solution Date: 2020-11-11 Public Disclosure: 2020-11-13 CVE Reference: CVE-2020-26554 Authors of Advisory: Micha Borrmann, Thomas Engel (SySS GmbH) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Overview: REDDOXX MailDepot is an e-mail archiving solution with many features and an optional web browser user interface. The manufacturer describes the product as follows (see [1]): "The email archiving solution works independently from the type of mail server, supports any type of storage and can therefore be easily integrated into any existing infrastructure." Due to the improper server-side invalidation of authentication tokens when using the logout function, authentication tokens can still be used. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Vulnerability Details: The web-based application displays the entire content of HTML e-mails. Also, external resources like images or JavaScript will be executed during the display of an e-mail. In addition, the subject field is not sanitized and allows the injection of JavaScript code which will be executed when an e-mail is displayed. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Proof of Concept (PoC): There are a lot of tools that generate HTML mails including JavaScript. The following part in an HTML e-mail illustrates the security issue: <img src=""> <script>alert("XSS Demonstration")</script> <script src=""></script> The subject of an e-mail may contain the following code which will be executed when the e-mail is viewed: <img src=X onerror='alert("XSS Demonstration")'</script> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Solution: Install the provided hotfix 43-restproxy-usergui [2] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Disclosure Timeline: 2020-09-30: Detection of the vulnerability 2020-10-01: Vulnerability reported to manufacturer 2020-10-04: CVE number assigned 2020-10-05: Manufacturer confirms vulnerability 2020-11-11: Hotfix was released by the vendor 2020-11-13: Public release of the security advisory ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ References: [1] REDDOXX MailDepot Product Website [2] REDDOXX Release Notes [3] SySS Security Advisory SYSS-2020-037 [4] SySS Responsible Disclosure Policy ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Credits: This security vulnerability was found by Micha Borrmann and Thomas Engel of SySS GmbH.
