MailEnable IMAP Server Buffer Overflow and Directory Traversal Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for buffer overflow and directory traversal vulnerabilities in MailEnable IMAP server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote IMAP server is affected by buffer overflow and directory
traversal vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running MailEnable, a commercial mail server for
Windows.

The IMAP server bundled with the version of MailEnable Professional or
Enterprise Edition installed on the remote host is prone to a
stack-based buffer overflow when handling an overly-long mailbox name
in certain commands. An authenticated attacker may be able to
leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code remotely as the SYSTEM
user.

It also fails to filter directory traversal sequences from mailbox
names passed to the 'CREATE' and 'RENAME' commands. An authenticated
attacker can exploit these issues to create arbitrary directories on
the affected host and to cause a denial of service by renaming the
mail directories of other users.

the IMAP Cumulative Hotfix dated November 18th, 2005, referenced in
