Mandrake: Updated imap packages fix Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A vulnerability was discovered in the CRAM-MD5 authentication in UW-IMAP where, on the fourth failed authentication attempt, a user would be able to access the IMAP server regardless. This problem exists only if you are using CRAM-MD5 authentication and have an /etc/cram-md5.pwd file. This is not the default setup. The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
