GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200212-1
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : pine
SUMMARY : remote DOS
DATE : 2002-12-02 13:12 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

An attacker can send a fully legal email message with a crafted
From-header and thus forcing pine to core dump on startup.
The only way to launch pine is manually removing the bad message
either directly from the spool, or from another MUA. Until the
message has been removed or edited there is no way of accessing
the INBOX using pine.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-mail/pine-4.44-r5 and earlier update their systems as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge pine
emerge clean
