(extracted from

IncrediMail is an advanced email program that offers you,
the user, an unprecedented interactive experience. With
IncrediMail you can tailor your emails according to your
mood and personality. Visual effects will entertain your
every sense. Go ahead. Express yourself like you never
did before!

My comments: Incredimail does really look quite cool, with
animations similar to the e-mail on Mission Impossible,
plus it's free.


Users can specify the filename of the skin, notifyer, animation etc
This is specified in a text file called Content.ini, which is
found in the compressed skin or animation.
By appending the traditional dot dot to the filename, malicious users
can easily over write any files on the same partition as Incredimail
is intalled to.
The file is automatically downloaded and copied to the client
machine when it accesses a site or e-mail which starts a download
for the Incredimail file. If the file already exists it tries
to over write it.

See the exploit example.

Exploit Example.
This webpage will simply create a file on C: (depends on which
partition you installed Incredimail) named Obscure.dat.
