Description

The remote host is missing a cumulative security update for Outlook Express that fixes a denial of service vulnerability in the Outlook Express mail client.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need to send a malformed message to a victim on the remote host. The message will crash the version of Outlook, thus preventing the user from reading email.
