CommuniGate Pro HTTP Configuration Port Remote Overflow

high Nessus Plugin ID 10048


The remote service has a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The remote host appears to be running Communigate Pro, a commercial email and groupware application.

It was possible to crash this service by :

- First, connecting to port 8010 and sending 70 KB of data (AAA[...]AAA) followed by '\r '.

- Then, connecting to port 25.

A remote attacker could exploit this to crash the service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to Communigate Pro version 3.2 or later.
