Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:073 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: metamail security update 2004-02-18 00:00:00 EST

  None (edit)
Description Mark J. Cox 2004-02-16 05:07:13 EST
Ulf Härnhammar discovered two integer overflow bugs and two buffer
overflow bugs in versions of Metamail up to and including 2.7.  An
attacker could create a carefully crafted message such that when it is
opened by a victim and parsed through Metamail it runs arbitrary code
as the victim. 

Please note that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 does not contain Metamail
and is therefore not vulnerable to these issues.

Embargoed until Feb18 2004
