Microsoft Outlook Express "BCC:" Recipient Disclosure Weakne

In reply to: VULNERABILITIES - August 25, 2004

Microsoft Outlook Express 6

Juha-Matti Laurio has reported a weakness in Outlook Express 6, which
may disclose email addresses in "BCC:" fields to other recipients.

The weakness is caused due to an error when sending multipart
messages. This may allow recipients in the "To:" and "CC:" fields to
see the email addresses of recipients in the "BCC:" field.

In Outlook Express, this requires users to open the email message in
a editor. In Lotus Notes, the "BCC:" recipients are displayed
directly in the message body without having to open it in an editor.

Security company Internet Security Systems is warning its customers about a critical security hole in a commonly used technology from the Mozilla Foundation called the Netscape Network Security Services (NSS) library that could make Web servers vulnerable to remote attack.

ISS issued a security bulletin this week about a flaw in the NSS library's implementation of the Secure Sockets Layer Version 2 (SSLv2) protocol that could allow remote attackers to use an SSLv2 connection to take control of Web servers using the NSS library. The flaw in the NSS library affects the Netscape Enterprise Server and Sun Microsystems' Sun Java System Web Server, but may also affect countless other products that use the open source NSS library, ISS says.
