RoundCube Webmail HTML cross-site scripting
|roundcube-html-xss (48129)||Medium Risk|
RoundCube Webmail is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially-crafted email message embedded with the HTML background attribute to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the message is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
