    Vulnerability Description
    An exploitable buffer overflow condition exists in the Netmail
    webinterface. It is possible for an attacker to attain remote root
    access on Linux and possibly other platforms. There is another
    buffer overflow condition in the webadmin interface running on port
    81, which however is not active on a default installation. We have
    not looked in to the exploitability of the later issue.
