Description

Meh Chang discovered a buffer overflow flaw in a utility function used in the SMTP listener of Exim, a mail transport agent. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service, or potentially the execution of arbitrary code via a specially crafted message.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this problem has been fixed in version 4.80-7+deb7u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your exim4 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
