Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1116
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1116.

The cyrus-imapd packages contain a high-performance mail server with IMAP,
POP3, NNTP, and SIEVE support.

It was discovered that the Cyrus SASL library (cyrus-sasl) does not always
reliably terminate output from the sasl_encode64() function used by
programs using this library. The Cyrus IMAP server (cyrus-imapd) relied on
this function's output being properly terminated. Under certain conditions,
improperly terminated output from sasl_encode64() could, potentially, cause
cyrus-imapd to crash, disclose portions of its memory, or lead to SASL
authentication failures. (CVE-2009-0688)

Users of cyrus-imapd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which resolve this issue. After installing the update, cyrus-imapd will be
restarted automatically.

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
