SMTP Service STARTTLS: Plaintext Command Injection

Created: 28 Jan 2013 | 2 comments

We are currently running Symantec Messaging Gateway (aka Brightmail) version 9.5.3-3, but have seen where CVE-2011-0411, CVE-2011-1430, CVE-2011-1431, CVE-2011-1432, CVE-2011-1506, CVE-2011-2165 marks it as vulnerable. I have searched the symantec KB and website but have not found any documentation on this specific issue. I work for a goverment division and we need this secured. Anyone have the documentation to show the fix?

Also looking for any FIPS documentation on the latest verstion 10.0.1-2

We have upgraded to version 10.0.1-2 and are still getting these listed as vulnerable. we are running FIPS on the current server/version.

Is there a work around or solution to this security risk?
