|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: qmailAdmin: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200611-15)
Date: November 21, 2006
qmailAdmin is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that could lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code.
qmailAdmin is a free software package that provides a web interface for managing a qmail system with virtual domains.
Vulnerable: < 1.2.10
Unaffected: >= 1.2.10
Architectures: All supported architectures
qmailAdmin fails to properly handle the "PATH_INFO" variable in qmailadmin.c. The PATH_INFO is a standard CGI environment variable filled with user supplied data.
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending qmailAdmin a maliciously crafted URL that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running qmailAdmin.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All qmailAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/qmailadmin-1.2.10"
