Symptoms

Outlook Web App Token Spoofing Vulnerability

A token spoofing vulnerability exists in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. It could allow an attacker to send email messages that seem to come from a trusted source, and the messages contain a link to a website of the attacker. In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a website that is used to try exploiting this vulnerability. Additionally, compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content or advertisements could contain specially crafted content that could exploit this vulnerability. However, in almost every case, an attacker cannot force users to view the attacker controlled content. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action, typically by having them click a link in an email message or Instant Messenger message, to take users to his or her website.

Cause

This issue occurs because Outlook Web App does not properly validate a request token.
