IBM Lotus Domino IMAP CRAM-MD5 buffer overflow
|domino-imap-crammd5-bo (33276)||High Risk|
IBM Lotus Domino is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the IMAP Server's CRAM-MD5 authentication function in nimap.exe. By sending a specially-crafted request containing an overly long username to TCP port 143, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the server to crash.
