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

The SMTP component in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2 and SP3, Server 2003 SP2, and Server 2008 Gold, SP2, and R2, and Exchange Server 2000 SP3, does not properly allocate memory for SMTP command replies, which allows remote attackers to read fragments of e-mail messages by sending a series of invalid commands and then sending a STARTTLS command, aka "SMTP Memory Allocation Vulnerability."
