Mercur Mailserver Remote Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote IMAP server is running Mercur Mailserver.

This version of Mercur is vulnerable to a flaw where remote users can send specially crafted IMAP LOGIN and SELECT commands. Upon parsing of these commands, the Mercur Mailserver crashes, potentially executing arbitrary system code.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
