Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated cyrus-imapd packages that fix several buffer overflow security
issues are now available.

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

The cyrus-imapd package contains the core of the Cyrus IMAP server.

Several buffer overflow bugs were found in cyrus-imapd. It is possible that
an authenticated malicious user could cause the imap server to crash.

the imap server when news is received using the fetchnews command. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2005-0546 to this issue.

Users of cyrus-imapd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain cyrus-imapd version 2.2.12 to correct these issues.
