WinGate IMAP Server Directory Traversal Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to create a directory in WinGate's main directory
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote IMAP server is prone to multiple directory traversal
The remote host appears to be running WinGate, a Windows application
for managing and securing Internet access.
The version of WinGate installed on the remote host fails to remove
directory traversal sequences from the 'CREATE', 'SELECT', 'DELETE',
'RENAME', 'COPY', 'APPEND', and 'LIST' commands before using them to
access messages. An authenticated attacker may be able to exploit
this issue to read mail belong to other users and to create / rename /
delete arbitrary directories on the affected system.
