Date:  Mar 15 2012
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of authentication information, Modification of user information

Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in McAfee Email Gateway. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote authenticated user can obtain potentially sensitive information. A remote authenticated user can view files on the target system.

The management console does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the management interface and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote authenticated user can reset the passwords of other administrators.

A remote authenticated user can obtain active session tokens via the Dashboard.

A user can obtain password hashes from a system backup.

A remote authenticated user can submit a specially crafted URL to download arbitrary files from the target device.

A remote authenticated user can view arbitrary file contents with root privileges.
