Test ID:
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2004:123 (perl-MIME-tools)
Summary:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2004:123 (perl-MIME-tools)

The remote host is missing an update to perl-MIME-tools
announced via advisory MDKSA-2004:123.

There's a bug in MIME-tools, where it mis-parses things like
boundary=. Some viruses use an empty boundary, which may allow
unapproved parts through MIMEDefang.

The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.

As well, the Updated perl-MIME-tools requires MIME::Base64 version
3.03. Since MIME::Base64 is integrated in the perl package on
Mandakelinux, these updates now provide the newer version.

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1

To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.


Risk factor : High
