Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-009: elm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the elm packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated elm packages are now available that fix a buffer overflow
vulnerability in the 'frm' command.

Elm is a terminal mode email user agent. The frm command is provided as
part of the Elm packages and gives a summary list of the sender and subject
of selected messages in a mailbox or folder.

A buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the frm command. A possible hacker
could create a message with an overly long Subject line such that when the
frm command is run by a victim arbitrary code is executed. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2003-0966 to this issue.

Users of the frm command should update to these erratum packages, which
contain a backported security patch that corrects this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Paul Rubin for discovering and disclosing this
issue.
