IPSwitch IMail SMTP Buffer Overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
IPSwitch IMail SMTP Buffer Overflow

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A vulnerability exists within IMail that
permits remote attackers to gain SYSTEM level
access to servers running IMail's SMTP
daemon (versions 6.06 and below). The
vulnerability stems from the IMail SMTP daemon
not doing proper bounds checking on various input
data that gets passed to the IMail Mailing List
handler code. If a possible hacker crafts a special
buffer and sends it to a remote IMail SMTP server
it is possible that a possible hacker can remotely execute
code (commands) on the IMail system.
