Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cyrus-imapd (MDKSA-2004:139)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 15836


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


A number of vulnerabilities in the Cyrus-IMAP server were found by Stefan Esser. Due to insufficient checking within the argument parser of the 'partial' and 'fetch' commands, a buffer overflow could be exploited to execute arbitrary attacker-supplied code. Another exploitable buffer overflow could be triggered in situations when memory allocation files.

The provided packages have been patched to prevent these problems.


Update the affected packages.
