Steven from lovebug.org reported a vulnerability in Captaris Infinite Mobile Delivery. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks and can determine the installation path.|
The webmail feature does not properly validate user-supplied input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Infinite Mobile Delivery 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.
A demonstration exploit URL is of the following format:
The server will also disclose the installation path in response to the following type of URL containing a character that cannot be used as part of a Windows directory (folder) name:
The vendor was notified in November 2004.

Subject: XSS in Infinite Mobile Delivery v2.6 Webmail|
Vendor: Captaris, Inc.

Issue: XSS in Infinite Mobile Delivery v2.6 Webmail
The webmail portion of the latest (and final) release of Infinite Mobile Delivery
contains a Cross Site Scripting vulnerability. In addition to the XSS, an even smaller
issue exists where a user can determine the installation path of the client and where
e-mails are stored.
A user once logged in can simply start writing scripting immediately after their user
name and it will be executed within the browser.
The server will respond with:
Unable to parse request for user blah:
Also, the server will return the installation path if an illegal windows folder
character or name is entered after 'Folder:' - For example, Windows does not let you
have folders containing < > * | : \ / ? or com1, com2, etc.
The server will respond with:
Error creating file: [drive letter]:\file's\path\USERS\username\?.IDX
I am not aware of any solutions at this time.
The vendor was notified of the issue in November 2004. They also told me that Captaris
is no longer developing Infinite Mobile Delivery and that there probably won't be any
changs implemented. To the best of my knowledge there will be no further releases and
there is no fix available.
