=====================================================================4) Description of Vulnerabilities

Secunia Research has discovered some vulnerabilities in 
Winmail Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct 
cross-site scripting and script insertion attacks, and overwrite 
arbitrary files.

1) Input passed to the "sid" parameter in "admin/main.php" isn't 
properly verified, before it is used to create session files. This 
can be exploited to overwrite arbitrary files with session 
information via directory traversal attacks.

2) Input passed to the "retid" parameter in "badlogin.php" isn't 
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.

3) Input passed in the mail body and the "Content-Type" header of 
incoming HTML mails isn't properly sanitised before being displayed 
to the user. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML and 
script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in 
context of an affected site when the malicious mail is viewed.

Example:
A "javascript:" URL in an iframe tag. Other variants are also possible.

4) The problem is that attachments of incoming mails are opened 
insecurely in the browser. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary 
HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an 
affected site by tricking a user into opening a malicious attachment.

The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in version 4.2 (build 0824). 
Other versions may also be affected.

=====================================================================5) Solution

Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
