- Incorrect parsing of DNS Mail Exchanger (MX) resource records could cause the Windows Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) component to stop responding until the service is restarted. (CVE-2010-0024)

- Improper allocation of memory for interpreting SMTP command responses may allow an attacker to read random e-mail message fragments stored on the affected server. (CVE-2010-0025)
