Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.11499
Category:SMTP problems
Title:Sendmail buffer overflow due to type conversion
Summary:Checks the version number
Description:
The remote sendmail server, according to its version number,
may be vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow allowing remote
users to gain root privileges.

Sendmail versions from 5.79 to 8.12.8 are vulnerable.
Solution : Upgrade to Sendmail ver 8.12.9 or greater or
if you cannot upgrade, apply patches for 8.10-12 here:

NOTE: manual patches do not change the version numbers.
Vendors who have released patched versions of sendmail
may still falsely show vulnerability.

*** OpenVAS reports this vulnerability using only
*** the banner of the remote SMTP server. Therefore,
*** this might be a false positive.

Risk factor : High
