Hi, Mark.

It seems like there was some mis-naming of CVEs when you included exim-4.72-0003-CVE-2011-1407.patch in:

* Wed May 18 2011 Mark Chappell <tremble.uk> 4.72-2

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=702474#c5

It looks like, based on Ubuntu's CVE page, that the actual fix for CVE-2011-1407 is here:


and what you called CVE-2011-1407 actually fixed CVE-2011-1764.

Do you think you could apply the above patch to fix CVE-2011-1407, and that would resolve all outstanding exim flaws?  Thanks!

Comment 3 Vincent Danen 2012-10-26 15:08:21 UTC
Ping?  This has not yet been resolved, but exim has been updated for a new flaw today, and CVE-2011-1407 is still unfixed.

Comment 4 Jaroslav Škarvada 2012-10-26 15:14:12 UTC
Well, in case of no response from Mark, I can check it as a co-maintainer.

Comment 5 Mark Chappell 2012-10-26 16:40:25 UTC

If you have the time to update that would be appreciated, I really have sucked at keeping up with this, work's been insane.


Comment 6 Jaroslav Škarvada 2012-10-26 18:44:28 UTC
Mark, thanks for info, I will look on it.

Comment 7 Vincent Danen 2012-10-27 06:06:54 UTC
