Fedora Core 4 : libc-client-2002e-17 (2005-1115)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

The c-client library provides an API which allows applications to
access and manipulate remote mail boxes.

The library contains a bug in its mail_valid_net_parse() function. If
an application allows untrusted input to be supplied to this function,
its stack may become corrupted. This update backports the fix from
imap-2004g which resolves this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
