Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:848

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:848.

C-client is a common API for accessing mailboxes.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the way C-client parses user
supplied mailboxes. If an authenticated user requests a specially crafted
mailbox name, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a server that
uses C-client to access mailboxes. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2933 to this issue.

All users of libc-client should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
