1) Input validation error
The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.
The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input within the IMAP and LMTP components when many characters must be read while computing the snippet and a trailing “>” character is present. As a result the recipient cannot read all messages in the mailbox.
