Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xemacs packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated XEmacs packages that fix a string format issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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

XEmacs is a powerful, customizable, self-documenting, modeless text editor.

Max Vozeler discovered several format string vulnerabilities in the
movemail utility of XEmacs. If a user connects to a malicious POP server,
a possible hacker can execute arbitrary code as the user running xemacs. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2005-0100 to this issue.

Users of XEmacs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct this issue.
