UW-IMAP < 2007d.404 Multiple Utility Mailbox Name Overflow

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

There is a flaw in the remote UW-IMAP server that allows a local user to execute arbitrary code on the server. The flaw is in the way that UW-IMAP handles malformed data sent to the 'tmail' and 'dmail' local executables. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need local access as well as the ability to execute the aforementioned binaries. Successful exploiation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary code as the 'root' user.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2007d.404 or higher.
