Smail < 3.2.0.121 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a remote 'format string' flaw.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Smail, a mail transport agent, that is older or as old as than version 3.2.0.120. The remote version of this software contains various vulnerabilities that may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host by exploiting a heap overflow in the function which processes the 'MAIL FROM' command.

Solution

Upgrade to Smail 3.2.0.121 or higher.
