    EIMS buffer overrun

    wow, let's see, OS 7, '91...that's like 13 years. I guess they need to fill up that Mac section somehow.

    Mac OS 7?

    Hello there is no such thing. It was called "System 7". Let's get things right especially if we are going to report on a System that is 13 years old. How dumb.

    Is this a problem in OS 7 alone, or does it also cover OS 7.0.1, 7.1, 7.1.1, 7.5, 7.5.1, 7.5.2, and 7.5.3???

    And what versions of EIMS??? This bug seems to be kind of vague.

    And I think this is an example of why we have so many security problems in our current software. Apparently there's too many people (I would say 1 is too many in this context) testing old, old, old software on old, old, old, old Operating systems.

    EIMS 1.3.1

    It is version 1.3.1 and who can say why, how, or who would want to take the time to find this bug. This version of EIMS is so old that it is offered as a free download by Qualcomm who isn't even the current distributor of the software.

    It shouldn't be used anyway, because it cannot be completely secured from unauthorized relaying. Nice reporting, MacNN. Also, way to go to the "security" company who felt it was worthwhile to worry about this.
