Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:123: perl-MIME-tools

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the perl-MIME-tools package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:123 (perl-MIME-tools).



There's a bug in MIME-tools, where it mis-parses things like boundary=''. Some
viruses use an empty boundary, which may permit unapproved parts through
MIMEDefang.

The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.

As well, the Updated perl-MIME-tools requires MIME::Base64 version 3.03. Since
MIME::Base64 is integrated in the perl package on Mandakelinux, these updates
now provide the newer version.
