Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA386] DSA-386-1 libmailtools-perl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-386-1 libmailtools-perl

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The SuSE security team discovered during an audit a bug in
Mail::Mailer, a Perl module used for sending email, whereby
potentially untrusted input is passed to a program such as mailx,
which may interpret certain escape sequences as commands to be
executed.
This bug has been fixed by removing support for programs such as mailx
as a transport for sending mail. Instead, alternative mechanisms are
used.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.44-1woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your libmailtools-perl package.
