Mandrake: 'imap' Buffer overflow vulnerability  28 May 2002 
A buffer overflow was discovered in the imap server that could allow a malicious user to run code on the server with the uid and gid of the email owner by constructing a malformed request that would trigger the buffer overflow.
Mandrake: 'webmin' Unauthorized access vulnerability  22 May 2002 
A vulnerability exists in all versions of Webmin prior to 0.970 that allows a remote attacker to login to Webmin as any user. All users of Webmin are encouraged to upgrade immediately.

Several buffer overflows were found in the tcpdump package by FreeBSD developers during a code audit, in versions prior to 3.5. However, newer versions of tcpdump, including 3.6.2, are also vulnerable to another buffer overflow in the AFS RPC decoding functions.

Mandrake: 'imlib' Remote privilege escalation vulnerability  25 April 2002 
These problems could allow attackers to construct images that could cause crashes or, potentially, the execution of arbitrary code when said images are loaded by a viewer that uses imlib.
Mandrake: 'rsync' Improper privilege vulnerability  17 April 2002 
Ethan Benson discovered a bug in rsync where the supplementary groups that the rsync daemon runs as (such as root) would not be removed from the server process after changing to the specified unprivileged uid and gid.
