Ipswitch IMail Client < 2006.23 Multipart MIME Email Overflow

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4268


The remote Windows host contains a program that is prone to a buffer overflow attack.


IMail Client, a tool for administering Ipswitch IMail Server, is installed on the remote Windows host. The version of IMail Client on the remote host contains a boundary error that can be triggered by a long 'boundary' parameter in when processing emails with multipart MIME data. If an attacker can trick the Ipswitch Mail Server administrator to open a specially-crafted email using the affected application, he can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Upgrade to version 2006.23 or higher.
