The remote host is running a version of XtraMail with a remote buffer
overflow vulnerability. XtraMail includes a remote administration
utility which listens on port 32000 for logins. Providing a username
of over 15,000 characters causes a buffer overflow, which could allow
a remote attacker to crash the service or potentially execute
arbitrary code.
