Debian Security Advisory DSA 1010-1                                       Martin Schulze

Package        : ilohamail
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE -2005-1120
BugTraq ID     : 13175
Debian Bug     : 304525

Ulf H�rnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered that
ilohamail, a lightweight multilingual web-based IMAP/POP3 client, does
not always sanitise input provided by users which allows remote
attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ilohamail

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.14-0rc3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.14-0rc3sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ilohamail package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias sarge

  Source archives:
      Size/MD5 checksum:      620 d2bc31dc5387c2c8c15d1791f7705407
      Size/MD5 checksum:    21653 ad9a2d34c3ba983e9fa18d28589e857c
      Size/MD5 checksum:   381671 d20ce048d494bbd54fcfb3e5d46f384b

  Architecture independent components:
      Size/MD5 checksum:   398762 2dcae76e1b8b7bdded127902c1933368

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
