Cobalt Raq3 PopRelayD Arbitrary SMTP Relay Vulnerability

poprelayd is a script that parses /var/log/maillog for valid pop logins, and based upon the login of a client, allows the person logged into the pop3 service to also send email from the ip address they're accessing the system with.

poprelayd doesn't authenticate output to the /var/log/maillog file. This makes it possible for a user to create an arbitrary string via sendmail that will be logged to the file, thus allowing a remote user to relay mail through the SMTP server.
