PIX's smtp content filtering Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
attempts to communicate directly with the remote SMTP server
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote SMTP server seems to be
protected by a content filtering firewall
probably Cisco's PIX.
However, a possible hacker may bypass this content filtering
by issuing a DATA command before a MAIL command,
that allow him to directly communicate with the real SMTP daemon.
