Kerio MailServer IMAP Server Login Command Denial of Service Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote IMAP server is prone to denial of service attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running Kerio MailServer, a commercial mail server

it receives certain malformed IMAP LOGIN commands. An unauthenticated
remote attacker can exploit this issue to deny access to legitimate
users.

Note that the application may not terminate immediately but only after
an administrator acknowledges a console message.
