Zero Day Initiative Advisory 07-043
Posted Jul 25, 2007
Authored by Tipping Point, Sebastian Apelt | Site zerodayinitiative.com

This vulnerability allows attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Ipswitch IMail and ICS server. Authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability. The specific flaw exists due to a lack of bounds checking during the parsing of arguments to the SUBSCRIBE IMAP command sent to the IMAP daemon listening by default on TCP port 143. By providing an overly long string as the argument, an exploitable stack-based buffer overflow occurs.
