Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:850

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
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 the library. The Common Vulnerabilities and
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.

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

Risk factor : High
