Description

Avirt Mail 4.0/4.2 'Mail From:' and 'Rcpt to:' DoS Vulnerability. CVE-2000-0971. Dos exploit for windows platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/1825/info

Due to insufficient bounds checking in the code that handles the fields 'MAIL FROM:' and 'RCPT TO:', it is possible to remotely crash Avirt Mail.

Entering over 272 characters into the 'RCPT TO:' field will crash the application upon termination of the session and no further connections can be initiated until Avirt Mail is restarted. This is also the case with the 'MAIL FROM' field with the exception that over 556 characters must be entered.
