Version 2.3.1 of True North Software's Internet Anywhere Mail Server contain
a buffer overflow vulnerability in it's POP3 mail server. By entering a
username that is more than a few hundred characters,
mailserv.exe will crash which will stop SMTP and POP3 as they are both
controlled by the same executable. Note that EIP is overwritten and remote
access can be gained.
The newest version, version 3.1.3 of the software is not vulnerable. All
version 2.3.1 of the software should upgrade as v2.3.1 and other older
versions are no longer supported
by the vendor.
