AXIGEN Mail Server < 2.0.0 Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote mail server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running AXIGEN Mail Server, a messaging system for
Linux and BSD.

The POP3 server component of AXIGEN Mail Server contains a format
string vulnerability because it calls syslog() when logtypeis set to
'system'. In addition, the IMAP server component is affected by two
denial of service issues involving PLAIN and CRAM-MD5 authentication
methods. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can leverage these issues
to crash the IMAP service and possibly execute arbitrary code
remotely.
