Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA501] DSA-501-1 exim

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-501-1 exim

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Georgi Guninski discovered two stack-based buffer overflows. They can
not be exploited with the default configuration from the Debian
system, though. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems that are fixed with this update:
When "sender_verify = true" is configured in exim.conf a buffer
overflow can happen during verification of the sender. This
problem is fixed in exim 4.
When headers_check_syntax is configured in exim.conf a buffer
overflow can happen during the header check. This problem does
also exist in exim 4.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.35-1woody3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.36-11 for exim 3 and in version 4.33-1 for exim 4.
We recommend that you upgrade your exim package.
