The remote NNTP server has a remote buffer overflow vulnerability.
A vulnerable version of Cassandra NNTP Server appears to be running
on the remote host. Providing a long argument to the 'AUTHINFO USER'
command results in a buffer overflow. A remote attacker could use
this to create a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
