FreeBSD : cyrus-imapd -- multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities (b2d248ad-88f6-11d9-aa18-0001020eed82)
High Nessus Plugin ID 19086
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe Cyrus IMAP Server ChangeLog states :
- Fix possible single byte overflow in mailbox handling code.
- Fix possible single byte overflows in the imapd annotate extension.
- Fix stack-based buffer overflows in fetchnews (exploitable by peer news server), backend (exploitable by admin), and in imapd (exploitable by users though only on platforms where a filename may be larger than a mailbox name).
The 2.1.X series are reportedly only affected by the second issue.
These issues may lead to execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the Cyrus IMAP Server.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
