Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : perl-MIME-tools (MDKSA-2004:123)
High Nessus Plugin ID 15603
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThere's a bug in MIME-tools, where it mis-parses things like boundary=''. Some viruses use an empty boundary, which may allow unapproved parts through MIMEDefang.
The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.
As well, the Updated perl-MIME-tools requires MIME::Base64 version 3.03. Since MIME::Base64 is integrated in the perl package on Mandakelinux, these updates now provide the newer version.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
