Linux Exim mail servers version 4.87 – 4.91 (inclusive) is at risk of exploitation via CVE-2019-10149 [1]. This vulnerability is currently being exploited by threat actors in the wild [2]. Successful exploitation of CVE-2019-10149 allows remote, unauthenticated threat actors to perform remote code execution on vulnerable systems. Attacks in the wild include a wormable exploit, which after successful exploitation may spread to additional vulnerable EXIMservers.

There is a high confidence rating that vulnerable Linux EXIM mail servers will be affected by this exploit. Organizations need to apply the official security patch as soon as possible to avoid potential compromise.

eSentire has not observed attacks against client companies at this time.
