Sendmail does not properly handle malformed multipart MIME messages. This vulnerability may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to cause a denial-of-service condition.
This vulnerability will not cause the Sendmail server process to terminate. However, it may cause the Sendmail to consume a large amount of system resources. Specifically, if a system writes uniquely named core dump files, this vulnerability may cause available disk space to be filled with core dumps leading to a disruption of system operation resulting in a denial-of-service condition.
This vulnerability was reported by Sendmail.
