Synopsis: Rockliffe's Mailsite Imap Directory Transversal Vulnerability.
Product: Rockliffe Mailsite
Version: Confirmed on Mailsite < 18.104.22.168
Author: Josh Zlatin-Amishav
Date: January 4, 2006
Rockliffe MailSite secure email server software and MailSite MP secure email
gateways provide email server solutions and gateway email protection for
businesses and service providers. Rockliffe has more than 3,000 customers
hosting more than 15 million mailboxes worldwide.
In working with researchers at Tenable Network Security, I have come across
a directory transversal flaw in the IMAP server. It is possible for an
authenticated user to access any user's inbox via a RENAME command.

Mailsite fixed a buffer overun in the Mailsite IMAP server which also fixes
the directory transversal problem. Either upgrade to version 6.1.22 and install
the hotfix (i.e. upgrade to 188.8.131.52), or install the latest version of
Mailsite. The hotfix can be obtained at:
