The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200611-15
(qmailAdmin: Buffer overflow)
qmailAdmin fails to properly handle the 'PATH_INFO' variable in

filled with user-supplied data.
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending
qmailAdmin a maliciously crafted URL that could lead to the execution
of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running qmailAdmin.
There is no known workaround at this time.
