UoW imapd (UW-IMAP) Multiple Command Remote Overflows

This script is Copyright (C) 2001-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote IMAP server is affected by multiple remote buffer overflow
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running UoW IMAP Server. The installed
version is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability because the
software fails to verify input length of arguments to the 'LIST',
'COPY', 'RENAME', 'FIND', 'LSUB' commands. An attacker, exploiting
this flaw could execute arbitrary commands subject to the privileges
of the connected user.
