Inframail SMTP MAIL FROM Command Remote Overflow DoS
High Nessus Plugin ID 18588
SynopsisThe remote SMTP server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the SMTP server component of Inframail, a commercial suite of network servers from Infradig Systems.
According to its banner, the installed version of Inframail suffers from a buffer overflow vulnerability that arises when the SMTP server component processes a MAIL FROM command with an excessively long argument (around 40960 bytes). Successful exploitation will cause the service to crash and may allow arbitrary code execution.
SolutionUpgrade to Inframail 7.12 or later.
