Description Josh Bressers 2004-10-05 10:32:02 EDT
Gentoo has reported this issue via vendor-sec on 2004-10-05

Libsasl honors the environment variable SASL_PATH blindly, allowing a
local user to compile a "library" locally that is executed with the
EID of SASL when anything calls libsasl.

I've uploaded the upstream patch as attachment 104781 [details]
Comment 2 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-10-07 09:44:17 EDT
removing embargo
Comment 3 Tomasz Ostrowski 2004-10-11 06:58:40 EDT
Gentoo in the same advisory that corrected CAN-2004-0884
mentioned also a buffer overflow:
"Cyrus-SASL contains a remote buffer overflow in the digestmda5.c file."

Does this overflow affect FC? I can not find what it was.

Looks like it's fixed in 2.1.19:
