                                            `Hi@all,  
  
VMWare Zimbra Mailer Release 8.6.0.GA, latest patch and prior versions   
with DKIM implementation are vulnerable to longterm Mail Replay attacks.  
  
If the expiration header is not set, the signature never expires. This   
means, that the e-mail, perhaps catched while performing a man in the   
middle attack, can be replayed years after catching it.  
  
This can be combined with the spoofed reply-to header field, because the   
header field is not hashed by Zimbras DKIM implementation.  
  
Supporter of vulnerability analysis: Steffen Mauer @this point I want to   
thank Steffen for his good work =)  
  
Background:  
To configure DKIM with VMware Zimbra the official documentation advises   
the administrator to use the zimbra management tools. With the   
management tools there is no possibility to add custom Header’s for   
hashing it with DKIM or for setting the expiration DKIM Header.
