Server comms software provider Ipswitch has issued patches for a series of security flaws that could allow remote attackers to take over a company’s network.
The flaws mainly affect the latest version of the Ipswitch Collaboration Suite, which supports e-mail, contact lists, calendaring and other enterprise communications components.
The Ipswitch Collaboration Suite runs in Windows environments and has more than 50 million users.
The security vulnerabilities were reported by security researcher iDefense, which said most of the flaws were easy to exploit by attackers.
One of the vulnerabilities can be exploited by creating a buffer overflow, which allows an attacker to execute malicious code on the server.
