Mail in Apple Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5.1, when an SMTP account has been set up using Account Assistant, can use plaintext authentication even when MD5 Challenge-Response authentication is available, which makes it easier for remote attackers to sniff account activity.

Weakness

When an actor claims to have a given identity, the software does not prove or insufficiently proves that the claim is correct.
