Hushmail.com Information for VU#361600

Web-based email services filtering systems vulnerable to malicous script execution

Status

Affected

Vendor Statement

The vulnerability has been fixed. We have no record of a notification on September 5th, or we certainly would have fixed this earlier. It was a very straightforward issue involving a failure to use the htmlspecialchars() PHP function in that area of the code. It is our general practice to always use this method when displaying information using PHP in order to avoid such scripting vulnerabilities, and we regret the unfortunate oversight.

Many thanks to 1; and everyone else who has helped us keep HushMail secure in the past.
