IA eMailServer IMAP Server Search Command Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for search command buffer overflow vulnerability in IA eMailServer's IMAP server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote IMAP server is susceptible to buffer overflow attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running IA eMailServer, a commercial messaging
system for Windows.

The IMAP server bundled with the version of IA eMailServer installed
on the remote host crashes when it receives a SEARCH command argument
of 560 or more characters. An authenticated attacker could exploit
this issue to crash the service and possibly to execute arbitrary code
remotely.

Note that IA eMailServer can be configured to run as a service with
LOCAL SYSTEM rights, although this is not the default.
