Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has mutt packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- An issue was discovered in Mutt before 1.10.1 and NeoMutt before 2018-07-16. They allow remote IMAP servers to execute arbitrary commands via backquote characters, related to the mailboxes command associated with a manual subscription or unsubscription.
(CVE-2018-14354)

- An issue was discovered in Mutt before 1.10.1 and NeoMutt before 2018-07-16. pop.c does not forbid characters that may have unsafe interaction with message-cache pathnames, as demonstrated by a '/' character. (CVE-2018-14362)

- An issue was discovered in Mutt before 1.10.1 and NeoMutt before 2018-07-16. They allow remote IMAP servers to execute arbitrary commands via backquote characters, related to the mailboxes command associated with an automatic subscription. (CVE-2018-14357)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL mutt packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
