Sinapsi created a new version to mitigate a vulnerability with plain text passwords in its eSolar Light application, according to a report on ICS-CERT.
Sinapsi eSolar Light firmware versions prior to 2.0.3970_schsl_2.2.85 suffer from the vulnerability, discovered by Independent researcher Maxim Rupp.
Access to the plaintext passwords will compromise the confidentiality and integrity of the mail client.
