Mailenable SMTP Connector Vulnerable to DOS attack

    I have discovered that there is a DOS vulnerablility in Plesk's default installation of MailEnable ver 1.96 and it is NOT...I REPEAT NOT YET IN THE PLESK AUTO UPDATER!!!!!!

    I am noticing my smtp connector mysteriously is stopping in the plesk services manager once in a while.

    Why are the SWsoft not aware of this vulnerability when it has been known since 2006-06-26 ?

    There is apparently a hotfix available from mailenable but I am personally scared to install it since it is not a hotfix that can be applied by Plesk's own Auto-updater tool.

    The hotfix is available here: http://www.mailenable.com/hotfix/MESMTPC.ZIP

    Can someone at SWsoft please explain?
