MailCOPA command line buffer overflow
|mailcopa-commandline-bo (34052)||High Risk|
MailCOPA is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by command line arguments. By persuading a victim to visit a malicious Web page and clicking on a specially-crafted 'mailto' link using an overly long command line argument, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system.
Upgrade to the latest version of MailCOPA (8.01 - 2007-05-01 or later), available from the InterVations Web site. See References.
