CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


PACKAGE : imap 
SUMMARY : Remote buffer overflow 
DATE : 2002-05-24 11:32:00 
ID : CLA-2002:487 
RELEVANT 
RELEASES : 6.0, 7.0, 8 


- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


DESCRIPTION 
 "imap"[4] is a package that contains POP2, POP3 and IMAP servers 
 developed at the University of Washington (UW). 
  
 Marcell Fodor published[1] a remote buffer overflow 
 vulnerability[2][3] in the IMAP server. This vulnerability can be 
 exploited by a remote attacker after he or she has been successfully 
 authenticated by the server. Arbitrary code could then be executed, 
 but with the privileges of the authenticated user. 
  
 This vulnerability only affects the IMAP server available in this 
 package. 
  
 The updated packages have been fixed with the patch made available by 
 the author[5]. 



SOLUTION 
 It is recommended that all imap users upgrade their packages. 
  
 After the upgrade, no restart is necessary since these servers are 
 handled by inetd or xinetd.
