Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : imapsync (MDVSA-2014:060)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73052


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.


Updated imapsync package fixes security vulnerabilities :

Imapsync, by default, runs a release check when executed, which causes imapsync to connect to and send information about the version of imapsync, the operating system and perl (CVE-2013-4279).

The imapsync package has been patched to disable this feature.

In imapsync before 1.584, a certificate verification failure when using the --tls option results in imapsync attempting a cleartext login (CVE-2014-2014).


Update the affected imapsync package.
