DESCRIPTION:
A weakness and multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in
Symantec Messaging Gateway, which can be exploited by malicious users
to bypass certain security restrictions and by malicious people to
disclose certain sensitive information and conduct cross-site
scripting and request forgery attacks.

1) Certain input passed via web or email content 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.

2) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP
requests without performing proper validity checks to verify the
requests. This can be exploited to e.g. gain administrative access
when a logged-in administrative user visits a specially crafted web
page.

3) An error within the management interface can be exploited to
perform otherwise restricted actions and e.g. modify the underlying
web application.

4) The weakness is caused due to the application disclosing detailed
component version information.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 9.5.x and prior.

SOLUTION:
Upgrade to version 10.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
The vendor credits Ben Williams, NGS Secure.
