Debian Security Advisory DSA-1685-1                                   Steffen Joeris

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : uw-imap
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows, null pointer dereference
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-5005 CVE-2008-5006

Two vulnerabilities have been found in uw-imap, an IMAP
implementation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

It was discovered that several buffer overflows can be triggered via a
long folder extension argument to the tmail or dmail program. This
could lead to arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-5005).

It was discovered that a NULL pointer dereference could be triggered by
a malicious response to the QUIT command leading to a denial of service

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2002edebian1-13.1+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) and the testing distribution
(lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 2007d~dfsg-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your uw-imap packages.

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.
