A vulnerability was reported in IMail Server. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.|
Several scripts do 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 site running the IMail Server software 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.
The new contacts, adding group, calendar, and task sections are affected.

# CVE : 2014-3878 (Calendar section)
Four injection points were useful to create a persistent Cross Site
Scripting. All the injections are reached using default Web Client
interface, but the Web Client Lite seems to be not vulnerable to these
1. Contacts section:
A persistent XSS can be reached adding a new contact with a specific string
in the Name field and whatever image:
When the contact is saved and on mouse over the picture the Name is been
displayed in a bubble activating the JS.
2. Contacts section:
A vulnerability can also be reached in the Adding Group task.

3. Calendar section:
A persistent XSS can be reached adding a new event in the Calendar; this
event can be spread adding the Meeting Request option.
Since, using this injection point, the XSS can be spread to other users,
this is the most dangerous of the four and can be used to spoofing sessions
and therefore compromising the attacked users account.
In a similar way also the tasks are vulnerable to persistent XXS.
