Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2005-1112: libc-client

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libc-client package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1112 (libc-client).

C-client is a common API for accessing mailboxes. It is used internally by
the popular PINE mail reader, the University of Washington's IMAP server
and PHP.

Update Information:

The c-client library provides an API which permits
applications to access and manipulate remote mail boxes.

The library contains a bug in its mail_valid_net_parse()
function. If an application permits untrusted input to be
supplied to this function, its stack may become corrupted.
This update backports the fix from imap-2004g which resolves
this issue.
