Ability Mail Server Stores Passwords in the Clear
">Ability Mail Server has "been designed to be small, fast, reliable,
advanced and very feature rich. This powerful mail server is capable of
running on both the Internet and a LAN (i.e. for either Internet or
internal mail systems), bringing professional mail handling at a fraction
of the normal price". Due to a vulnerability in the product, the usernames
and passwords are stored by the product in clear text, allowing anyone
with local access to gather sensitive usernames and passwords.
* Ability Mail Server version 1.09
Ability Mail Server stores all usernames and passwords in the file
\Program Files\Code-Crafters\Ability Mail Server\config\accounts.dta in
clear text. If a malicious user were to gain access to this file, they
would have a list of all usernames and their associated passwords.
