Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : imap (MDKSA-2001:054)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Several buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been found in the UW-IMAP
package by the authors and independent groups. These vulnerabilities
can be exploited only once a user has authenticated which limits the
extent of the vulnerability to a remote shell with that user's
permissions. On systems where the user already has a shell, nothing
new will be provided to that user, unless the user has only local
shell access. On systems where the email accounts do not provide shell
access, however, the problem is much greater.

Solution :

Update the affected imap and / or imap-devel packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.6
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
