WinWebMail is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

Remote attackers can exploit this issue to crash the server and deny service to legitimate users. Given the nature of this issue, attackers may also be able to execute arbitrary code, but this has not been confirmed.

WinWebMail 3.7.3.2 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
