Background ========== IMAP Proxy (also known as up-imapproxy) proxies IMAP transactions between an IMAP client and an IMAP server. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 net-mail/up-imapproxy < 1.2.4 >= 1.2.4 Description =========== Steve Kemp discovered two format string errors in IMAP Proxy. Impact ====== A remote attacker could design a malicious IMAP server and entice someone to connect to it using IMAP Proxy, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the victim user. Workaround ========== Only connect to trusted IMAP servers using IMAP Proxy. Resolution ========== All IMAP Proxy users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/up-imapproxy-1.2.4" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2005-2661 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2005-2661 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200603-04.xml Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost importance to us.
