Description

In versions of QPopper prior to v4.0.5, there is a discrepency between the handling of valid and invalid usernames. This discrepency can be used to determine what usernames exist on a system. Though not a security risk by itself, this issue can greatly simplify more complex attacks against the target host.

Solution(s)

  • qpopper-upgrade-4_0_5

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.
