Avirt Rover POP3 Server Overflow
Reported December 27, 1999 by USSRLabs
Rover POP3 Server is a software package that
includes POP3 and SMTP services. The POP3 service was discovered to contain a buffer
overflow condition that can crash the server.
By sending 10,000 characters as the user name, the buffer will overflow and crash the service.
Avirt has been contacted regarding this matter. Rover has been phased out, so users should migrate their mail platform to Avirt Mail 3.5 or Avirt Mail v4 RC1.
