This bug also works with Apple Share ip 5.0 but do not crash at all the
computer. This bug just reset the mail application.

Subject: MacOS based buffer overflows...
Eudora Internet Mail Server vs. 1.2, 2.0, 2.01 DoS
Telnet to port 106 of an EIMS server.
Type USER xxxxxxxxxxxx(at least a 1000+ char string). EIMS will crash.
Occasionally taking the entire machine with it.
Apple's Web Sharing DoS
Telnet to port 80 of a Web Sharing server (built into system 8.0+).
Upon connect enter any string of at least 3000+ characters. Hit return
twice, Web Sharing will stop servicing. It does not seem to make the
server any less stable and Web Sharing seems to be able to be restarted
with out a reboot and without any ill effects.
