Immune Systems:
 * Zaep AntiSpam

Once you send an email to an organization protected by Zaep, a URL like: http://vulnerable.zaep/?key=3d981f0f.4056b0a6.23285275 is issued. If you modify the URL to include <script>something</script>, the Zaep will convert the ‘/’ sign to , making the script clause not work properly. So far, this behavior will ‘protect’ the product from a cross-site scripting vulnerability. However, double encoding the / sign (%252F) will bypass this conversion, and allow you to insert malicious content (JavaScript, HTML, etc) into the page.

Exploit (for all the vulnerabilities):
