Scientific Linux Security Update : procmail on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 77629
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in procmail's formail utility. A remote attacker could send an email with specially crafted headers that, when processed by formail, could cause procmail to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running formail.
SolutionUpdate the affected procmail and / or procmail-debuginfo packages.
