Inframail SMTP MAIL FROM Command Remote Overflow DoS

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

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running the SMTP server component of Inframail, a
commercial suite of network servers from Infradig Systems.

According to its banner, the installed version of Inframail suffers
from a buffer overflow vulnerability that arises when the SMTP server
component processes a MAIL FROM command with an excessively long
argument (around 40960 bytes). Successful exploitation will cause the
service to crash and may allow arbitrary code execution.
