Product: OX Guard
Vendor: OX Software GmbH

Internal reference: 65132 (Bug ID)
Vulnerability type: Cross-Site Scripting (CWE-80)
Vulnerable version: 7.10.2 and earlier
Vulnerable component: backend
Report confidence: Confirmed
Solution status: Fixed by Vendor
Fixed version: 7.6.3-rev48, 7.8.4-rev59, 7.10.0-rev32, 7.10.1-rev14, 7.10.2-rev5
Vendor notification: 2019-05-09
Solution date: 2019-06-13
Public disclosure: 2019-08-15
CVE reference: CVE-2018-9997
CVSS: 5.4 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N)

Vulnerability Details:
Curly brackets can be used to bypass XSS sanitization in HTML mail and other HTML attachments. A variation of the original issue has been found thats based on incorrect global eventhandler blacklist entries.

Malicious script code can be executed within a users context. This can lead to session hijacking or triggering unwanted actions via the web interface (sending mail, deleting data etc.).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a HTML mail with curly brackets that disguise event handlers in CSS
2. Make a App Suite user open the malicious mail

Proof of concept:
<div style=width:100%;height:10px;font:\"'/{/onMouseLeave=alert(1)//></div>

We updated the list of blacklisted event handlers to close this bypass, operators may add a workaround by updating "globaleventhandlers.list" and change the incorrect handler "onmounseleave" to "onmouseleave".

CVE reference: CVE-2019-11521
CVSS: 5.3 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)

Vulnerability Details:
Internal evaluation revealed that OX Guard is vulnerable to a subset of techniques used to display a valid signature from the identity of a trusted communication partner located in the mail header, although the crafted email is actually signed by an attacker. Our discoveries are based on work of a team of researchers, publishing these spoofing techniques under the "Johnny You Are Fired" project name.

Recipients of signed PGP mail could be fooled to assume the mail originates from a trusted source rather than an attacker. This would elevate the mails trust level and potentially ease social-engineering attacks.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create mails that contain valid signatures but originate from a different source

Proof of concept:

We improved validation and make sure mail with valid signatures is only evaluated to be "trusted" if the sender matches the signature issuer. We also extended our API to provide more information about a specific signature to let clients add checks and handle invalid signature information.
