Description

The remote Exchange server seems to be vulnerable to a flaw that lets malformed MIME headers crash it.

Nessus did not actually test for these flaws - it just relied on the banner to identify them. Therefore, this warning may be a false positive - especially since the banner DOES NOT CHANGE if the patch has been applied.
