Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51178


The remote mail server has a denial of service vulnerability.


The version of Microsoft Exchange 2007 running on the remote host has a denial of service vulnerability. The Exchange service does not process specially crafted RPC calls correctly, resulting in an infinite loop.

A remote, authenticated attacker could exploit this by making a specially crafted RPC call, causing the service to become non-responsive.
