Synopsis :

The remote service is vulnerable to multiple issues.

Description :

- It may let mail pass against some filter rules if the
attached files names have some strange chars in them
- It is possible for an outsider to crash this program
and force its reinstallation

*** Nessus did not actually test for these flaws - it just relied
*** on the banner to identify them. Therefore, this warning may be
*** a false positive
