|2001-11-11||CVE-2001-0894||Wietse Venema|| Denial Of Service vulnerability in Wietse Venema Postfix 19990906/19991231/20000228 |
Vulnerability in Postfix SMTP server before 20010228-pl07, when configured to email the postmaster when SMTP errors cause the session to terminate, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion) by generating a large number of SMTP errors, which forces the SMTP session log to grow too large.
|2001-11-05||CVE-2001-1388||Netfilter|| Allocation of Resources Without Limits OR Throttling vulnerability in Netfilter Iptables |
iptables before 1.2.4 does not accurately convert rate limits that are specified on the command line, which could allow attackers or users to generate more or less traffic than intended by the administrator.
1 Low Vulnerabilities
|2001-11-05||CVE-2001-1387||Netfilter|| Information Exposure vulnerability in Netfilter Iptables |
iptables-save in iptables before 1.2.4 records the "--reject-with icmp-host-prohibited" rule as "--reject-with tcp-reset," which causes iptables to generate different responses than specified by the administrator, possibly leading to an information leak.
