Subject: Barracuda Spam Firewall Cross Site Scripting (XSS) Vulnerabilities
My ISP uses the Barracuda Networks Spam Firewall, Firmware v3.1.17 (2005-08-06 11:48:38). When editing my e-mail account preferences, I noticed that a few fields were prone to cross site scripting (XSS) attacks.
Pages – Fields:
Whitelist/Blacklist – Email Address field add_user_scana_sender_allow and add_user_scana_sender_block form fields
Quarantine Settings – Notification Address
Put the following text into the field, and it will render the script:
A second issue I noticed, my e-mail account password is stored as an encoded value in a hidden field. The password (encoded) is also used in various HREFs, causing it to be visible in the browser. This means it is transmitted without the protection of SSL encryption, a known secure standard.

Hi Brian –
Finally, if you do set up a password, you can login at https://barracuda.xxxxx.net which uses a self-signed certificate. This
still uses the authentication tokens in the!
URL, but as noted, they are not reusable from another location. Please
let me know if you have any other questions or concerns, and I will be
happy to pass them on to our vendor.
