New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote SMTP server is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionThe 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.
SolutionUpgrade to version 2006.1 of the appropriate application.
