Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the imap package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:026 (imap).



A vulnerability was discovered in the CRAM-MD5 authentication in UW-IMAP where,
on the fourth failed authentication attempt, a user would be able to access the
IMAP server regardless. This problem exists only if you are using CRAM-MD5
authentication and have an /etc/cram-md5.pwd file. This is not the default
setup.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
