Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a program that is prone to a buffer
overflow attack.

Description :

IMail Client, a tool for administering Ipswitch IMail Server, is
installed on the remote Windows host.

The version of IMail Client on the remote host contains a boundary
error that can be triggered by a long 'boundary' parameter when
processing emails with multipart MIME data. If an attacker can trick
the Ipswitch Mail Server administrator to open a specially crafted
email using the affected application, he can leverage this issue to
execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
