1 CVE-2009-4565 310 Bypass 2010-01-04 2013-04-04
7.5
User Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
sendmail before 8.14.4 does not properly handle a '\0' character in a Common Name (CN) field of an X.509 certificate, which (1) allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL-based SMTP servers via a crafted server certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority, and (2) allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted client certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408.
2 CVE-2009-1490 119 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2009-05-05 2009-05-13
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
Heap-based buffer overflow in Sendmail before 8.13.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long X- header, as demonstrated by an X-Testing header.
3 CVE-2006-4434 399 DoS 2006-08-28 2011-03-10
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
Use-after-free vulnerability in Sendmail before 8.13.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a long "header line", which causes a previously freed variable to be referenced. NOTE: the original developer has disputed the severity of this issue, saying "The only denial of service that is possible here is to fill up the disk with core dumps if the OS actually generates different core dumps (which is unlikely)... the bug is in the shutdown code (finis()) which leads directly to exit(3), i.e., the process would terminate anyway, no mail delivery or receiption is affected."
4 CVE-2006-1173 399 DoS 2006-06-07 2011-05-13
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
Sendmail before 8.13.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via deeply nested, malformed multipart MIME messages that exhaust the stack during the recursive mime8to7 function for performing 8-bit to 7-bit conversion, which prevents Sendmail from delivering queued messages and might lead to disk consumption by core dump files.
5 CVE-2005-2070 DoS 2005-06-29 2008-09-05
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The ClamAV Mail fILTER (clamav-milter) 0.84 through 0.85d, when used in Sendmail using long timeouts, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service by keeping an open connection, which prevents ClamAV from reloading.
6 CVE-2003-0694 Exec Code Overflow 2003-10-06 2008-09-10
10.0
Admin Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The prescan function in Sendmail 8.12.9 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via buffer overflow attacks, as demonstrated using the parseaddr function in parseaddr.c.
7 CVE-2003-0681 Overflow 2003-10-06 2008-09-10
7.5
User Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
A "potential buffer overflow in ruleset parsing" for Sendmail 8.12.9, when using the nonstandard rulesets (1) recipient (2), final, or (3) mailer-specific envelope recipients, has unknown consequences.
8 CVE-2003-0161 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2003-04-02 2010-05-25
10.0
Admin Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The prescan() function in the address parser (parseaddr.c) in Sendmail before 8.12.9 does not properly handle certain conversions from char and int types, which can cause a length check to be disabled when Sendmail misinterprets an input value as a special "NOCHAR" control value, allowing attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a buffer overflow attack using messages, a different vulnerability than CVE-2002-1337.
9 CVE-2002-2261 264 Bypass 2002-12-31 2011-07-18
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Sendmail 8.9.0 through 8.12.6 allows remote attackers to bypass relaying restrictions enforced by the 'check_relay' function by spoofing a blank DNS hostname.
10 CVE-2002-1827 DoS 2002-12-31 2008-09-05
2.1
None Local Low Not required None None Partial
Sendmail 8.9.0 through 8.12.3 allows local users to cause a denial of service by obtaining an exclusive lock on the (1) alias, (2) map, (3) statistics, and (4) pid files.
11 CVE-2002-1337 Exec Code Overflow 2003-03-07 2008-09-05
10.0
Admin Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Buffer overflow in Sendmail 5.79 to 8.12.7 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain formatted address fields, related to sender and recipient header comments as processed by the crackaddr function of headers.c.
12 CVE-2001-0653 +Priv 2001-09-20 2008-09-05
4.6
User Local Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Sendmail 8.10.0 through 8.11.5, and 8.12.0 beta, allows local users to modify process memory and possibly gain privileges via a large value in the 'category' part of debugger (-d) command line arguments, which is interpreted as a negative number.
