Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2003-03-26 04:49:25 EST
A potential buffer overflow exists when parsing mailbox names returned by
an IMAP server. It is possible that a hostile IMAP server could cause
arbitrary code to be executed by the user running Balsa.

This is the same as CAN-2003-0140
