Turning off Horde

I got the following message from SecurityMetrics regarding Horde.  We don't use WebMail on our server and we also don't use any e-mail through my virtual server as it is all routed through GoDaddy.  I'd rather just turn it off to get around this but can't seem to find any instructions on how to completely disable it.

Description: Horde allows cross-site scripting (help.php) Severity: Area of Concern CVE: CVE-2004-2741 Impact: A malicious web site could cause arbitrary commands to run on a client through a specially crafted link to the vulnerable server. In some cases, this could result in the compromise of the client's cookies, leading to unauthorized access to web applications. Background: Many web sites include scripts, which are lists of commands which, when executed in sequence, provide some enhancement to a web page. Web browsers are able to recognize scripts in web pages by the &lt;SCRIPT&gt; tag and handle them accordingly. Resolution Cross-site scripting can be fixed either by creating a customized error page which does not display the URI, or by applying one of the following fixes: ASP Fast Forum:Upgrade to a version created after 1 NOV 2005. PHP-Nuke: (11/13/08) [http://phpnuke.org/modules.php?name=Dow nloads] Upgrade PHP-Nuke to a version higher than 8.1.

Although this program outputs the text/plain MIME type which shouldn't be susceptible to cross-site scripting, some browsers do not correctly handle this type and would therefore be vulnerable.

I have a feeling you are scanning the wrong IP.

I would have thought the IP to be scanned is your workplace IP address.... You might wish to speak to them about this.

Furthermore, security metrics have a helpline to call, they have scan technicians who can tell you the EXACT patch/procedure  you need to apply to resolve the issue.

This is my website they are scanning not the office IP.  The office IP scanned fine.

I'd rather just turn it off.  the mail. domain on my website just redirects to my main site currently.  No one here uses webmail so it serves no purpose being on.

Log into Plesk
Go to Settings > mail server settings > and you should find a tick box for Horde and AtMail

Un-tick and click OK at the bottom should turn it off
