'Name' => 'Qmail SMTP Bash Environment Variable Injection (Shellshock)',
'Description' => %q{
This module exploits a shellshock vulnerability on Qmail, a public
domain MTA written in C that runs on Unix systems.
Due to the lack of validation on the MAIL FROM field, it is possible to
execute shell code on a system with a vulnerable BASH (Shellshock).
This flaw works on the latest Qmail versions (qmail-1.03 and
netqmail-1.06).
However, in order to execute code, /bin/sh has to be linked to bash
(usually default configuration) and a valid recipient must be set on the
RCPT TO field (usually admin@exampledomain.com).
The exploit does not work on the "qmailrocks" community version
as it ensures the MAILFROM field is well-formed.
