PACKAGE : cyrus-imapd
SUMMARY: buffer overflows
DATE : 2002-12-27 23:12 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

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

- From first advisory:

"Cyrus' Sieve implementation contains a couple of classic string based buffer overflows in script parsing code. Anyone who can execute Sieve scripts can exploit these bugs. Versions up to libSieve 2.1.2 and Cyrus IMAP 2.1.10 are affected."

- From second advisory:

"Cyrus IMAP server has a a remotely exploitable pre-login buffer overflow. I checked versions 1.4 (oldest in web page) and 2.1.10 which both had it, so apparently all versions are affected."

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running net-mail/cyrus-imapd-2.1.9-r1 update their systems as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge cyrus-imapd
emerge clean

If you have cyrus-imap-dev-2.1.9-r1 and/or cyrus-imap-admin-2.1.9
installed you need to update those aswell:

emerge cyrus-imap-dev
emerge cyrus-imap-admin
