Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated cyrus-imapd packages that fix several buffer overflow security
issues are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the

The cyrus-imapd package contains the core of the Cyrus IMAP server.

Several buffer overflow bugs were found in cyrus-imapd. It is possible

crash. Additionally, a peer news admin could potentially execute
arbitrary code on the imap server when news is received using the
fetchnews command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0546 to this issue.

Users of cyrus-imapd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
