			'Description'    => %q{
					There exists an unauthenticated buffer overflow vulnerability
				in the POP3 server of Seattle Lab Mail 5.5 when sending a password
				with excessive length.

				Successful exploitation should not crash either the
				service or the server; however, after initial use the
				port cannot be reused for successive exploitation until
				the service has been restarted. Consider using a command
				execution payload following the bind shell to restart
				the service if you need to reuse the same port.

				The overflow appears to occur in the debugging/error reporting
				section of the slmail.exe executable, and there are multiple
				offsets that will lead to successful exploitation. This exploit
				uses 2606, the offset that creates the smallest overall payload.
				The other offset is 4654.

				The return address is overwritten with a "jmp esp" call from the
				application library SLMFC.DLL found in %SYSTEM%\\system32\\. This
				return address works against all version of Windows and service packs.

				The last modification date on the library is dated 06/02/99. Assuming
				that the code where the overflow occurs has not changed in some time,
				prior version of SLMail may also be vulnerable with this exploit. The
				author has not been able to acquire older versions of SLMail for
				testing purposes. Please let us know if you were able to get this
				exploit working against other SLMail versions.
