Microsoft Outlook Express POP Denial of Service Vulnerability



The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack


The remote host is running a version of Outlook Express that is vulnerable to a DoS attack whereby a malicious message sent to the users mailbox will halt POP mail download. This vulnerability results from Outlook incorrectly processing escaped '.' as EOM markers when the dots are contained in separate IP datagrams.


Upgrade to the latest version.
