DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Symantec Mail Security,
which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable
system.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to various errors within the
third-party Lotus 1-2-3 file viewer and can be exploited to cause
buffer overflows when a specially crafted file is checked.

For more information:
SA27849

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but
requires that e.g. a policy is setup for scanning the contents of
messages.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in Symantec Mail Security for SMTP
version 5.0.1 with Patch 187. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Disable scanning of message content if enabled.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Originally reported in IBM Lotus Notes by Sebastián Muñiz, CORE
IMPACT Exploit Writers Team.
