Description

A logic error in the CRAM-MD5 code for the University of Washington IMAP (UW-IMAP) server, when Challenge-Response Authentication Mechanism with MD5 (CRAM-MD5) is enabled, does not properly enforce all the required conditions for successful authentication, which allows remote attackers to authenticate as arbitrary users.

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
