Vulnerability Assessment Details

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.
