r0t has reported some vulnerabilities in HiveMail, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct SQL injection attacks and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Input passed to the "email", "cond", and "name" parameters in addressbook.view.php, to the "daysprune" parameter in index.php, to the "data[to]" parameter in compose.email.php, and to the "markas" parameter in read.markas.php 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.
2) Input passed to the "fields" parameter in search.results.php is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 1.3. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
