Previous versions of GroupWise are potentially also vulnerable but are no longer supported. Customers on earlier versions of GroupWise should, at a minimum, upgrade their WebAccess servers and associated Domains to version 2014 R2 SP1 HP1 in order to secure their system.


A vulnerability exists in the GroupWise WebAccess message viewer that may allow an attacker to execute javascript in the context of an authenticated user by getting the user to interact with a malicious mail message sent by the attacker. This could lead to session compromise or enable other browser based attacks.


To resolve this vulnerability, update GroupWise WebAccess to 2014 R2 SP1 HP1 (or later).
