                        SCO Security Advisory

Subject:                UnixWare 7.1.3 Open UNIX 8.0.0 : Sendmail: buffer overflow in versions 8.12.8 and prior.
Advisory number:        CSSA-2003-SCO.23
Issue date:             2003 September 22
Cross reference:        sr876458 fz527629 erg712276
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        There is a remotely exploitable vulnerability in sendmail
        that could allow an attacker to gain control of a vulnerable
        sendmail server. 
        
        Due to a variable type conversion problem (char to signed int), 
        sendmail may not adequately check the length of address tokens. 
        A specially crafted email message could trigger a stack overflow. 

        This vulnerability was discovered by Michal Zalewski. 

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
        has assigned the name CAN-2003-0161 to this issue.
