Description

    Paul Van  Dyke found  following.   When running  a Nessus security
    scan  Paul  discovered  that  Norton  AntiVirus for Internet Email
    Gateways for Windows NT will  crash with an unusually long  URL on
    it's webserver.  This service is a SMTP agent used to screen email
    attachments for viruses.  It s eems like a great idea, but it uses

    During the Nessus  scan, it has  crashed every time  rendering the
    service unavailable with a Doctor Watson screen.
