Description

Some SMTP servers, including older versions of sendmail include a DEBUG command which allows remote users to execute arbitrary commands on the host.

On servers which support it, the DEBUG command allows remote users to gather information about the mailing lists on the system.

Solution(s)

  • smtp-general-debug

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
