GNU Mailutils <= 0.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in GNU Mailutils <= 0.6

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote mail server is affected by multiple issues.

Description :

GNU Mailutils is a collection of mail utilities, including an IMAP4
daemon, a POP3 daemon, and a very simple mail client.

The remote host is running a version of GNU Mailutils containing
several critical flaws in its IMAP4 daemon and its mail client 'mail'.
By exploiting these issues, a remote attacker can cause a denial of
service in the IMAP4 daemon and execute code remotely, either in the
context of a local user or the user executing the daemon process,
typically root.

In addition, it may suffer from a SQL injection flaw if configured to
work with MySQL or Postgres. A possible hacker may be able to exploit this
flaw to modify database queries when mailutils tries to authenticate a
user, leading to disclosure of sensitive information or modification
of data.
