Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-114: imap

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the imap packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated imap packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

The imap package provides server daemons for both the IMAP (Internet
Message Access Protocol) and POP (Post Office Protocol) mail access
protocols.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the c-client IMAP client. A possible hacker
could create a malicious IMAP server that if connected to by a victim could
execute arbitrary code on the client machine. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0297
to this issue.

Users of imap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
