CVE-2007-1558

Priority
Untriaged
Description
The APOP protocol allows remote attackers to guess the first 3 characters
of a password via man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks that use crafted message
IDs and MD5 collisions. NOTE: this design-level issue potentially affects
all products that use APOP, including (1) Thunderbird 1.x before 1.5.0.12
and 2.x before 2.0.0.4, (2) Evolution, (3) mutt, (4) fetchmail before
6.3.8, (5) SeaMonkey 1.0.x before 1.0.9 and 1.1.x before 1.1.2, (6) Balsa
2.3.16 and earlier, (7) Mailfilter before 0.8.2, and possibly other
products.
