     Zaep AntiSpam Cross Site Scripting

    Article reference:


    Beyond Security has discovered a security vulnerability in
    <http://www.zaep.com/> Zaep AntiSpam 2.0, the vulnerability would allow a
    remote attacker to use the Zaep program's CGI to cause it to return third
    party content as if it were its own (A cross-site scripting vulnerability).
    This vulnerability would allow (depending on the web server's configuration
    and site sensitivity) to steal cookies, display alternative information
    (cross-site defacement), or redirect users to malicious sites.


    Vulnerable Systems:
     * Zaep AntiSpam 2.0

    Immune Systems:
     * Zaep AntiSpam

    Once you send an email to an organization protected by Zaep, a URL like:
    http://vulnerable.zaep/?key=3d981f0f.4056b0a6.23285275 is issued. If you
    modify the URL to include <script>something</script>, the Zaep will convert
    the '/' sign to \, making the script clause not work properly. So far, this
    behavior will "protect" the product from a cross-site scripting
    vulnerability. However, double encoding the / sign (%252F) will bypass this
    conversion, and allow you to insert malicious content (JavaScript, HTML, etc)
    into the page.

    Exploit (for all the vulnerabilities):

    Vendor response:
    The vendor has been very cooperative and has issued a patch to fix this
    problem as soon as they were notified.
