An unpatched high-severity security flaw has been disclosed in the open-source RainLoop web-based email client that could be weaponized to siphon emails from victims’ inboxes.

“The code vulnerability […] can be easily exploited by an attacker by sending a malicious email to a victim that uses RainLoop as a mail client,” SonarSource security researcher Simon Scannell said in a report published this week.

“When the email is viewed by the victim, the attacker gains full control over the session of the victim and can steal any of their emails, including those that contain highly sensitive information such as passwords, documents, and password reset links.”

Tracked as CVE-2022-29360, the flaw relates to a stored cross-site-scripting (XSS) vulnerability impacting the latest version of RainLoop (v1.16.0) that was released on May 7, 2021.
