The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated libc-client packages that fix a buffer overflow issue are now
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
C-client is a common API for accessing mailboxes.
A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the way C-client parses
user-supplied mailboxes. If an authenticated user requests a specially
crafted mailbox name, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code on
a server that uses C-client to access mailboxes. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name
CVE-2005-2933 to this issue.
All users of libc-client should upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.
