Package : slrn
Problem type : buffer overflow
Bill Nottingham reported a problem in the wrapping/unwrapping
functions of the slrn newsreader. A long header in a message might
overflow a buffer and which could result into executing arbitraty
code encoded in the message.
The default configuration does not have wrapping enable, but it
can easily be enabled either by changing the configuration or
pressing W while viewing a message.
This has been fixed in version 0.9.6.2-9potato1 and we recommand
that you upgrade your slrn package immediately.
