====================================================================== 4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in ArGoSoft Mail Server Pro, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.

Input passed in various e-mail headers (e.g. "subject" and "from") is not properly sanitised before being displayed by the "View Headers" functionality. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site when viewing the headers of a malicious e-mail.
