Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when processing mailbox names in the EXAMINE IMAP command. A remote authenticated attacker can send an EXAMINE IMAP command containing an overly long mailbox name, trigger stack-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to compromise vulnerable system.
