Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA637] DSA-637-1 exim-tls

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-637-1 exim-tls

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Philip Hazel announced a buffer overflow in the host_aton function in
exim-tls, the SSL-enabled version of the default mail-transport-agent
in Debian, which can lead to the execution of arbitrary code via an
illegal IPv6 address.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.35-3woody3.
In the unstable distribution (sid) this package does not exist
anymore.
We recommend that you upgrade your exim-tls package.
