Contact				: Adriel T. Desautels
Researcher			: Philippe C. Caturegli
Advisory ID			: NETRAGARD-20061218
Product Name			: @ Mail
Product Version			: 4.51
Vendor Name			: Calacode
Type of Vulnerability		: Cross Site Request Forgery
Effort				: Easy

Netragard Security Note:

Source code obfuscation does not reduce the risk profile of any
application as it has no impact on vulnerabilities that might exist
within a particular application. @Mail code was obfuscated using basic
obfuscation techniques.

[Product Description]
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
"@Mail is a feature rich Email Solution, providing a complete WebMail
interface for accessing email-resources via a web-browser or wireless

- --

[Technical Summary]
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
It is possible to take control of an @Mail webmail email account
by exploiting a Cross Site Request Forgery (XRSF) vulnerability in
the @Mail webmail product. An attacker can send a specially crafted
email to any @Mail webmail user with a forged "img" tag. This forged
tag, if crafted properly, will inject new settings into the @Mail
webmail users account.

http://server/webmail/<forged settings in here>

[Technical Details]
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
Netragard has discovered a critical flaw in @Mail webmail that allows
an attacker to change arbitrary settings in a users @Mail webmail
account. This flaw targets the page that is used to manage a
users account settings.

By default this page uses "HTTP POST" to commit changes. Netragard has
found that it is also possible to commit settings changes using an "HTTP

@Mail webmail's default configuration is to disable the display of
images for users that are not in the current accounts address book.
Users contained in the address book are considered to be trusted.

@Mail webmail's image loading security feature can be circumvented
by using specially crafted "img" tags embedded in emails sent to
@Mail webmail users. In fact, when an external image is referenced
by using the "img" tag, @Mail webmail automatically retrieves the
image and loads the image as a part of the email.

If the "img" tag is replaced by a specially crafted URL then an
attacker can commit changes to the targeted @Mail webmail email

[Proof Of Concept]
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
The below example changes the reply to address of the victim to Similar attacks can be used to change other user
settings including the users password.
