MailEnable POP3 Server Authentication Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to crash MailEnable POP3 Server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote POP3 server is affected by two authentication issues.

Description :

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

The POP3 server bundled with the version of MailEnable on the remote
host has a buffer overflow flaw involving authentication commands that
can be exploited remotely by an unauthenticated attacker to crash the
affected service and possibly to execute code remotely.

In addition, it reportedly has a cryptographic implementation mistake
that weakens authentication security.
