Package        : mailutils
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1520 CAN-2005-1521 CAN-2005-1522 CAN-2005-1523

"infamous41md" discovered several vulnerabilities in the GNU mailutils
package which contains utilities for handling mail.  These problems
can lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following vulnerabilities.

CAN-2005-1520

    Buffer overflow mail header handling may allow a remote attacker
    to execute commands with the privileges of the targeted user.

CAN-2005-1521

    Combined integer and heap overflow in the fetch routine can lead
    to the execution of arbitrary code.

CAN-2005-1522

    Denial of service in the fetch routine.

CAN-2005-1523

    Format string vulnerability can lead to the execution of arbitrary
    code.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 20020409-1woody2.

For the testing distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.6.1-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.6.1-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your mailutils packages.
