Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Mailutils: SQL Injection (GLSA 200506-02)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 06, 2005
Bug(s): #94824
ID: 200506-02

Synopsis

GNU Mailutils is vulnerable to SQL command injection attacks.

Background

GNU Mailutils is a collection of mail-related utilities.

Affected Packages

Package: net-mail/mailutils
Vulnerable: < 0.6-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.6-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

When GNU Mailutils is built with the "mysql" or "postgres" USE flag, the sql_escape_string function of the authentication module fails to properly escape the "" character, rendering it vulnerable to a SQL command injection.

Impact

A malicious remote user could exploit this vulnerability to inject SQL commands to the underlying database.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All GNU Mailutils users should upgrade to the latest available version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/mailutils-0.6-r1"


References

CAN-2005-1824
