Topic: My server is vulnerable on port 25 (SMTP with out auth)

Using port 25 and telnet from my server anyone could send emails without the need to login, that is, anyone could send emails pretending to be someone else.

How I can I avoid this.

Thanks for all, I hope someone can help me.
Best regards.

Re: My server is vulnerable on port 25 (SMTP with out auth)

Not exactly, If I telnet to my server and issue "mail -v test test@test.com" command I get the following

"MUST ISSUE A STARTTLS command first"

Knowing what I know about the IRedMail project there is no way the developers would have had the script configure a server as an open smtp relay.

I found this article that goes over how to test SMTP auth over telnet. http://www.petri.co.il/smtp-authentication.htm

Hi @kzkggaara,

*) Please show us how you test it with telnet, all commands you type and the output.
*) iRedMail is configured to enable SMTP AUTH for sending emails by default.
