Title: Cyrus IMAP Server: Multiple remote vulnerabilities (GLSA 200411-34)
Date: November 25, 2004
The Cyrus IMAP Server contains multiple vulnerabilities which could lead to remote execution of arbitrary code.
The Cyrus IMAP Server is an efficient, highly-scalable IMAP e-mail server.
Vulnerable: < 2.2.10
Unaffected: >= 2.2.10
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the argument parsers of the 'partial' and 'fetch' commands of the Cyrus IMAP Server (CAN-2004-1012, CAN-2004-1013). There are also buffer overflows in the 'imap magic plus' code that are vulnerable to exploitation as well (CAN-2004-1011, CAN-2004-1015).
An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the Cyrus IMAP Server.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Cyrus-IMAP Server users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/cyrus-imapd-2.2.10"
