=============
*Description:*
=============

CommunigatePro XML Interface to Messaging, Scheduling, and Signaling
protocol ("XIMSS") version 6.2 suffers from a Missing XIMSS protocol
Validation attack that leads to an email spoofing attack. A malicious
authenticated attacker will be able to craft the sending XIMSS request used
to send an email via changing the <From></From> tags by <To></To> tags and
vice versa, ending up sending an email from any source email of his/her
choice e.g. [email protected] to any destination email, which leads to
receiving the email on the victim's INBOX.


==========
*Impact:*
==========
1. An attacker can trick someone to click on malicious attachments (virus,
malware...etc) from trusted sources (e.g. an email coming from CEO).
2. This trust can give an attacker the ability to request for crucial files
or valuable reports from an employee in charge of a given service.
3. This trust can give an attacker the ability to request the mail
administrator or system administrator to reset his/her password to a
suggested one (mypassword123).
4. An attacker can perform an email bomb attack which is a form of network
abuse consisting of sending huge volumes of email to an address in an
attempt to overflow the mailbox. A good target can be the CEO's email
address.
6. etc...
