Vulnerability Assessment Details

Various pop3 overflows

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Attempts to overflow the in.pop3d buffers

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote POP3 server might be vulnerable to a buffer overflow
bug when it is issued at least one of these commands, with a too long
argument :

auth
user
pass

If confirmed, this problem might permit a possible hacker to execute
arbitrary code on the remote system, thus giving him an interactive
session on this host.

Solution : If you do not use POP3, disable this service in /etc/inetd.conf
and restart the inetd process. Otherwise, upgrade to a newer version.
