DESCRIPTION:
A weakness and multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in McAfee
Email and Web Security Appliance and McAfee Email Gateway, which can
be exploited by malicious users to disclose sensitive information and
bypass certain security restrictions and by malicious people to
conduct cross-site scripting and brute force attacks.

1) Certain unspecified input is not properly sanitised before being
returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML
and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected
site.

2) An error in the reset password functionality can be exploited to
reset the password of administrative users.

3) An error within the Dashboard discloses active session tokens and
can be exploited to hijack another user's session.

4) The system backup stores passwords with weak encryption and can be
exploited to decrypt the passwords via brute force attacks.

5) Certain unspecified input is not properly verified before being
used to download files. This can be exploited to download arbitrary
files from local resources via directory traversal sequences.

6) An unspecified error can be exploited to disclose the contents of
files.

Note: A weakness due to the server-side session remaining active has
also been reported.

The weakness and vulnerabilities have been reported in Email and Web
Security Appliance prior to versions 5.5 Patch 6 and 5.6 Patch 3 and
Email Gateway prior to version 7.0 Patch 1.
