MAILsweeper PowerPoint DoS Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks the remote banner

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is running MAILsweeper - a content security solution
for SMTP.

There is a flaw in the remote version of MAILsweeper which may allow
a possible hacker to disable this service by sending a malformed PowerPoint
file to any recipient through this SMTP server.

While processing the file, the server will enter into an infinite
loop which will consume all available CPU resources on this host.

*** Nessus did not actually test for this flaw - it just relied
*** on the banner to identify them. Therefore, this warning may be
*** a false positive

Solution : Upgrade to MAILsweeper 4.3.15 or newer
Threat Level: Medium
