Test ID:
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1130-1 (exim4-daemon-custom)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1130-1 (exim4-daemon-custom)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to exim4-daemon-custom
announced via advisory USN-1130-1.


It was discovered that the Exim daemon did not correctly handle format
strings in DKIM headers. An unauthenticated remote attacker could send
specially crafted email to run arbitrary code as the Exim user. The
default compiler options for affected releases reduces the vulnerability
to a denial of service under most conditions.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 11.04:
exim4-daemon-custom 4.74-1ubuntu1.1
exim4-daemon-heavy 4.74-1ubuntu1.1
exim4-daemon-light 4.74-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 10.10:
exim4-daemon-custom 4.72-1ubuntu1.2
exim4-daemon-heavy 4.72-1ubuntu1.2
exim4-daemon-light 4.72-1ubuntu1.2
