Critical Nessus Plugin ID 26015


The remote POP3 server is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The version of Hexamail installed on the remote host is affected by a buffer overflow in its POP3 service component that can be exploited by an unauthenticated, remote attacker to crash the service or to execute arbitrary code on the affected host with LOCAL SYSTEM privileges.


Upgrade to Hexamail version or later as that reportedly resolves the issue.
