                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           imap
Date:                   June 11th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:054

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, Corporate Server 1.0.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Several buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been found in the UW-IMAP
 package by the authors and independant groups.  These vulnerabilities
 can be exploited only once a user has authenticated which limits the
 extent of the vulnerability to a remote shell with that user's
 permissions.  On systems where the user already has a shell, nothing
 new will be provided to that user, unless the user has only local shell
 access.  On systems where the email accounts do not provide shell
 access, however, the problem is much greater.

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team at
  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Mandrake Linux 8.0, look for it in "updates/8.0/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
