Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1317
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1317.

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

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the cyrus-imapd NNTP server, nntpd. A
remote user able to use the nntpd service could use this flaw to crash the

privileges of the cyrus user. (CVE-2011-3208)

Red Hat would like to thank Greg Banks for reporting this issue.

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