Exim Multiple Overflows

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Exim Multiple Overflows

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running a version of the Exim MTA which is vulnerable
to several remote buffer overflows. Specifically, if either
'headers_check_syntax' or 'sender_verify = true' is in the exim.conf
file, then a remote attacker may be able to execute a classic stack-
based overflow and gain inappropriate access to the machine.

*** If you are running checks with safe_checks enabled, this may be a
false positive as only banners were used to assess the risk! ***

It is known that Exim 3.35 and 4.32 are vulnerable.

Solution : Upgrade to Exim latest version
