Hi folks, I found a vulnerability in the feature of virus scan for e-mail in Virus Buster 2001 from Trend Micro Inc. Virus Buster 2001 is a Japanese software package that has similar functions of PC-cillin 2000 such as eMail Virus Scanning and Browser Scanning. The feature of virus scan for e-mail in this software, called "eMail Virus Scanning" on PC-cillin, is used not to receive e-mail including virus by scanning every e-mail whenever MUA (Mail User Agent) imports e-mail by using POP3 protocol. The function is running as a proxy between MUA and MRA (Mail Retrieval Agent) as well. Problem Description ------------------- The buffer overflow occurs when MUA received email with the MIME Boundary defined in RFC 1341 including unusually long strings. As a result, the user of this software is not able to receive any e-mail(s) more. An attacker could use this vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands. A restart of the computer is required in order to gain normal functionality.
