Fedora 11 : cyrus-imapd-2.3.15-1.fc11 (2009-9901)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Fixed multiple stack-based buffer overflows in libsieve, which allowed
context- dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted SIEVE script.

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.
