The remote SMTP server is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The remote host is running Ipswitch Collaboration Suite / IMail Secure Server / IMail Server, commercial messaging and collaboration suites for Windows.

According to its banner, the version of Ipswitch Collaboration Suite / IMail Secure Server / IMail Server installed on the remote host has a stack-based buffer overflow in its SMTP server component that can be triggered by long strings within the characters '@' and ':'. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to leverage this flaw to crash the SMTP service or even to execute arbitrary code remotely.


Upgrade to version 2006.1 of the appropriate application.
