Category:SMTP problems
Title:Sendmail prescan() overflow
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.

Solution : Upgrade to Sendmail ver 8.12.10.
See also : http://lists.netsys.com/pipermail/full-disclosure/2003-September/010287.html


NOTE: manual patches do not change the version numbers.

may still falsely show vulnerability.

*** the banner of the remote SMTP server. Therefore,
*** this might be a false positive.

Risk factor : High
