Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:850
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:850.

The imap package provides server daemons for both the IMAP (Internet
Message Access Protocol) and POP (Post Office Protocol) mail access protocols.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the way the c-client library

Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2933 to this issue.

All users of imap should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.

Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
