3. Problem description:

Pine is an email user agent.

The c-client IMAP client library, as used in Pine 4.44 contains an integer
overflow and integer signedness flaw.  An attacker could create a malicious
IMAP server in such a way that it would cause Pine to crash.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name

Users of Pine are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:
