Test ID:
Category:SMTP problems
Title:XTramail MTA 'HELO' denial
There is a buffer overflow
when this MTA is issued the 'HELO' command
passed by an argument that is too long.

The HELO command is typically one of the first
commands required by a mail server. The command
is used by the mail server as a first attempt to
allow the client to identify itself. As such, this
command occurs before there is any authentication
or validation of mailboxes, etc.

This problem may allow an attacker to
execute arbitrary code on this computer,
or to disable your ability to send or
receive emails.

Solution : contact your vendor for a patch.

Risk factor : High
