AMTELCO miSecureMessages Server Release 6.2 performs weak authentication for access to user messages (CWE-287).
AMTELCO miSecureMessages Server Release 6.2 performs weak authentication for access to user messages. miSecureMessages authenticates client app XML requests for messaging data using the contact identifier value and a valid license key. The contact identifier is trivial to guess and a license key will be present on a licensed client app.
AMTELCO has provided a vendor statement about this vulnerability.
A remote attacker may be able to read users' messages by iterating through contact identifier values.
AMTELCO has addressed this vulnerability in miSecureMessages Server Release 6.3 which is available to all customers (login required).
