DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of MailEnable's IMAP service that is prone to a remote Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Specifically, an attacker requesting a nonexistent mailbox can crash the service. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to authenticate with some valid user account. Following successful authentication, the attacker would request a nonexistent mailbox. Successful exploitation leads to a loss of availability.
