Ubuntu 4.10 : cyrus21-imapd vulnerability (USN-87-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 20712
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionSean Larsson discovered a buffer overflow in the IMAP 'annotate' extension. This possibly allowed an authenticated IMAP client to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Cyrus IMAP server.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
