Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS) < 3.2.8 Multiple DoS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 20394


The remote mail server is affected by multiple denial of service flaws.


The remote host appears to be running Eudora Internet Mail Server, a mail server for Macs.

According to its banner, the version of Eudora Internet Mail Server (EIMS) installed on the remote host is reportedly susceptible to denial of service attacks involving malformed NTLM authentication requests as well as corrupted incoming MailX and temporary mail files. While not certain, the first issue is likely to be remotely exploitable.


Upgrade to EIMS version 3.2.8 or later.
