Description:   A vulnerability was reported in McAfee Email Gateway. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The Secure Web Mail Client user interface 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 McAfee Email Gateway 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.

Francois Goichon from Context Information Security reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the McAfee Email Gateway interface, 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.
