Fedora 11 : cyrus-imapd-2.3.15-1.fc11 (2009-9901)

High Nessus Plugin ID 41614


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixed multiple stack-based buffer overflows in libsieve, which allowed context- dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted SIEVE script.

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.


Update the affected cyrus-imapd package.
