Inframail SMTP Server < 7.12 MAIL FROM Command Remote Overflow

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3039


The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host is running the SMTP server component of Inframail, a commercial suite of network servers from Infradig Systems.

The installed version of Inframail suffers from a buffer overflow vulnerability that arises when the SMTP server component processes a MAIL FROM command with an excessively long argument (around 40960 bytes). Successful exploitation will cause the service to crash and may allow arbitrary code execution.


Upgrade to version 7.12 or greater.
