PIX's smtp content filtering

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
attempts to communicate directly with the remote SMTP server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote SMTP server seems to be
protected by a content filtering firewall
probably Cisco's PIX.

However, a possible hacker may bypass this content filtering
by issuing a DATA command before a MAIL command,
that permit him to directly communicate with the real SMTP daemon.
