MDaemon < 8.15 IMAP Mail Folder Name Remote Overflow

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3449


The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host is running Alt-N MDaemon, an SMTP/IMAP server for Windows. This version of MDaemon is vulnerable to a flaw in the way that it handles malformed IMAP commands. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to authenticate to the server and issue IMAP 'CREATE' and 'LIST' commands. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary code or crashing the service.


Upgrade to version 8.15 or higher.
