CVE-2006-1173 Sendmail before 8.13.7 allows remote attackers

  • CVE ID: CVE-2006-1173
  • Vendors:
  • Date: November 30, -0001
  • Severity: Low
  • Impact score: 0.00
  • Exploit score: 0.00

Sendmail before 8.13.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via deeply nested, malformed multipart MIME messages that exhaust the stack during the recursive mime8to7 function for performing 8-bit to 7-bit conversion, which prevents Sendmail from delivering queued messages and might lead to disk consumption by core dump files.
