Exim < 4.70 string_format Function Remote Overflow



The remote mail server is vulnerable to a command execution attack.


The remote host is running Exim, a message transfer agent.

Versions of Exim earlier than 4.70 are potentially affected by a heap overflow vulnerability. By sending a specially crafted message to the server, a remote attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the server subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.


Upgrade to Exim 4.70 or later.
