Description

Exim developers report:

If your Exim server accepts TLS connections, it is vulnerable. This does

not depend on the TLS libray, so both, GnuTLS and OpenSSL are affected.

The vulnerability is exploitable by sending a SNI ending in a

backslash-null sequence during the initial TLS handshake. The exploit

exists as a POC. For more details see the document qualys.mbx
