New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

SMTP service in MailEnable Standard, Professional, and Enterprise before ME-10014 (20060904) allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via an SPF lookup for a domain with a large number of records, which triggers a null pointer exception.
