Joey Mengele has discovered a vulnerability in SurgeMail, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the processing of the IMAP "SEARCH" command. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by sending a "SEARCH" command with an overly long argument.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 38k. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: The vendor has provided beta version 3.8m.
