Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:047: metamail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the metamail package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:047 (metamail).



Ulf Harnhammar discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the way that
metamail handles certain mail messages. A possible hacker could create a
carefully-crafted message that, when parsed via metamail, could execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the user running metamail. The updated
packages have been patched to address this issue.
