  Subject: Possible Bizmail Exploit?
  Posted: 12/27/2004 at 1:12:40 pm

Hi all,

Recently someone has used our bizmail form to relay spam to a large number of AOL addresses. I'm not sure exactly how they are doing this, but I know it's being done through bizmail. The bizmail.dat file contains a number of entries that this abuser has posted to the form, and as a result, hundreds and hundreds of spam emails have been sent to aol from our server.

Has anyone else had a problem with this? Any idea how to fix it? It appears to be a validation problem. My guess is that they sent escape characters through the form and tricked the perl script into doing something it wasn't meant to do ....

Any idead??

set okurls to 1 and take your shared ip address out of the okurl's and $send_attachement = "2"; personally i would not see how this could happen unless your on a shared ip address and you have the ip in your okurls other than that

ok, I've updated all of my scripts with the okurl settings... I'll monitor the situation from there... Hopefully this fixes it...

I sent my bizmail.dat file to Seth, maybe he'll have more insight...

No dice.. even with the okurl settings, this spammer is still able to send spam via the bizmail script .. :(
