Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51558
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:551
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:551
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2002:551.

Pine is a mail and news text based client developed by the Washington
University[1].

Linus Sjberg (lsjoberg@aland.net) discovered[2] a vulnerability that
allows an attacker to send a fully legal e-mail message with the
From: header crafted in such a way that will crash pine on
startup.

By exploiting this, an attacker can prevent the pine user of starting
the program to manage his/her mailbox. It was not confirmed if it is
possible to execute arbitrary code by exploiting this vulnerability,
but such a possibility exists.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned[3] the name CVE-2002-1320 to this issue.

Please notice that this new version of pine (4.50) includes several
new features and other bugfixes, as documented in the official
changelog[4].


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
