3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered some vulnerabilities in various
E-Post Mail Server products, which can be exploited by malicious users 
to bypass certain security restrictions, gain knowledge of certain
system information and cause a DoS (Denial of Service), or by
malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) A boundary error exists in the SMTP service in the handling of the
username supplied to the AUTH PLAIN and AUTH LOGIN commands. This can
be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow and allows
arbitrary code execution via an overly long username.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in EPSTRS.EXE version 4.18 and 
4.19, and in SPA-RS.EXE version 4.12. Other versions may also be
affected.

2) A boundary error exists in the POP3 service in the handling of the
username supplied to the APOP command. This can be exploited to cause
a stack-based buffer overflow and allows arbitrary code execution via
an overly long username.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in EPSTPOP4S.EXE version 4.03,
in and SPA-POP3S.EXE version 4.03. Other versions may also be
affected.

3) A boundary error exists in the IMAP service in the handling of the
mailbox name passed to the DELETE command. This can be exploited to
crash the server via an overly long mailbox name.

4) An input validation error exists in the IMAP service in the
handling of the arguments passed to the LIST command. This can be
exploited to obtain directory listings of arbitrary folders on the 
server with privileges of the IMAP service via directory traversal
attacks. It is possible to cause the service to crash by listing
certain directories.

5) Input validation errors exist in the IMAP service in the handling
of the APPEND, COPY, and RENAME commands. This can be exploited by
malicious users to create ".MSG" files and arbitrary directories
outside of the mail directory with privileges of the IMAP process
via directory traversal attacks.

6) An infinite loop error exists in IMAP service in the handling of
the APPEND command. This can be exploited by sending an APPEND command
to the service and terminating the connection without sending the
expected amount of data.

Successful exploitation causes the IMAP server to consume large 
amount of CPU resources, potentially causing a DoS.

Vulnerabilities #3, #4, #5, and #6 have been confirmed in
EPSTIMAP4S.EXE version 4.05 and in SPA-IMAP4S.EXE version 4.05.
Prior versions may also be affected.
