We have received reports that the version of the imap suite
in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a vulnerability in its POP-2 daemon,
which can be found in the ipopd package. Using this vulnerability
it is possible for remote users to get a shell as user "nobody"
on the server.

We recommend you upgrade your ipopd package immediately.
