Disclosure Date


spamdyke contains an overflow condition in multiple functions. The issue is due to boundary errors related to the incorrect use of the snprintf() and vsnprintf() functions. With an overly large request, a remote attacker can cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code.
