DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Symantec Message
Filter, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose
sensitive information, conduct session fixation, cross-site
scripting, and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) An error exists in the handling of access permissions in the
management interface when handling certain input, which can be
exploited to disclose version information.

2) An error exists in the handling of sessions and can be exploited
to hijack another user's session by tricking the user into logging in
after following a specially crafted link.

3) 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.

4) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP
requests without performing any validity checks to verify the
requests. This can be exploited to e.g. add an administrator by
tricking a logged in administrator into visiting a malicious web
site.

The vulnerabilities are reported in version 6.3.

SOLUTION:
The vendor recommends installing a patch or migrating to Symantec
Messaging Gateway.
