Introduction
==========="MailBee WebMail Pro is a web based mail client built as a set of ASP scripts." [from http://www.afterlogic.com] 

More Details
===========Cross Site Scripting:
Input passed directly to the "username" parameter in "check_login.asp" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site. 

Example:
/check_login.asp?email=>">

Workaround
============Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
You should work with "htmlspecialchars()" or "htmlentities()" php-function to ensure that html tags
are not going to be executed. 

Example:
$email = htmlspecialchars($_POST['email']);
$test = htmlentities($_GET('test'));
?>
