Fedora Core 3 : libc-client-2002e-13 (2005-1112)
High Nessus Plugin ID 20287
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe c-client library provides an API which allows applications to access and manipulate remote mail boxes.
The library contains a bug in its mail_valid_net_parse() function. If an application allows untrusted input to be supplied to this function, its stack may become corrupted. This update backports the fix from imap-2004g which resolves this issue.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected libc-client, libc-client-debuginfo and / or libc-client-devel packages.
