[Full-disclosure] eXtremail-v9

The attached POC exploits a trivial stack smash in the DNS parsing code
of eXtremail versions <= 2.1.1 (current). The POC attached is rather
trivial in that it simply answers queries with a suitable response
(to exhibit the overflow).

However, the problem is further compounded by the fact that eXtremail
neglects to even verify the validity of the transaction id in any
responses, and thus is trivially vulnerable to DNS spoofing attacks
(I am *pretty* sure a more *inventive* method of exploitation exists
to yield trivial remote root...).
