Qualcomm Eudora < 5.2 Long Attachment Filename Handling DoS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack

Description

The remote host is running a version of the Eudora mail client that may be vulnerable to a DoS attack. Specifically, a remote user can create a DoS attack by sending a file with an exceptionally long name. This does not cause an exploitable buffer overflow but crashes the program.

Solution

Upgrade to Version 5.2 or higher.
