Mandrake Linux Advisory: imap

May 28, 2002, 04:32 (0 Talkback[s])

______________________________________________________________________

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           imap
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:034
Date:                   May 27th, 2002
Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.1, 8.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow was discovered in the imap server that could allow a
 malicious user to run code on the server with the uid and gid of the
 email owner by constructing a malformed request that would trigger the
 buffer overflow.  However, the user must successfully authenticate to
 the imap service in order to exploit it, which limits the scope of the
 vulnerability somewhat, unless you are a free mail provider or run a
 mail service where users do not already have shell access to the 
 system.
