Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:139: cyrus-imapd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cyrus-imapd package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:139 (cyrus-imapd).



A number of vulnerabilities in the Cyrus-IMAP server were found by Stefan
Esser. Due to insufficient checking within the argument parser of the 'partial'
and 'fetch' commands, a buffer overflow could be exploited to execute arbitrary
attacker-supplied code. Another exploitable buffer overflow could be triggered
in situations when memory allocation files.

The provided packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
