Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : kolab-resource-handlers (MDKSA-2006:013)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20479


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


A problem exists in how the Kolab Server transports emails bigger than 8KB in size and if a dot ('.') character exists in the wrong place. If these conditions are met, kolabfilter will double this dot and a modified email will be delivered, which could lead to broken clear-text signatures or broken attachments.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.


Update the affected kolab-resource-handlers package.
