Ipswitch IMail IMAP EXAMINE Argument Buffer Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote IMAP server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of the Ipswitch Collaboration
Suite / Ipswitch IMail IMAP server that is prone to a buffer overflow
when processing an EXAMINE command with a long argument.
Specifically, if an authenticated attacker sends an EXAMINE command
with a malformed mailbox name of 259 bytes or more, he will overwrite
the saved stack frame pointer and potentially gain control of process
execution.
