/**
Exploit for : IMAP 5.0 SP3 DoS Exploit
Advisory    : http://secunia.com/advisories/19267/
Coder       : Omnipresent
Email       : omnipresent@email.it
Description : Tim Taylor has discovered a vulnerability in Mercur Messaging 2005, which can be exploited by malicious people and by malicious users to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or to compromise a vulnerable system.

              The vulnerability is caused due to boundary errors within the handling of IMAP commands. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via overly long arguments passed to the LOGIN and SELECT commands. Other commands may also be affected.

              Successful exploitation allows arbitrary code execution.

              The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 5.0 SP3. Other versions may also be affected.
