SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1035470
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-3969   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Apr 13 2016
Original Entry Date:  Apr 4 2016
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 7.6.x, prior to 7.6.404
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in McAfee Email Gateway. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The interface does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input when generating HTML email alerts. 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.

Systems with File Filtering enabled with the action set to 'ESERVICES:REPLACE' are affected.

Wesley Neelen from DearBytes B.V. 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 interface, or take actions on the interface acting as the target user.
