Description Ville Skyttä 2007-02-14 20:38:38 UTC

"Buffer overflow in Roaring Penguin MIMEDefang 2.59 and 2.60 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code via unspecified vectors."

All FE releases are currently at 2.58 - it is unclear to me if that's affected.
 2.61 is available in any case.

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2007-02-14 20:46:42 UTC
"Please note that versions 2.58 and earlier do NOT have the vulnerability." 
032011.html) - I'll update mimedefang anyway to 2.61.

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2007-02-15 10:11:34 UTC
27596 (mimedefang): Build on target fedora-development-extras succeeded.
27600 (mimedefang): Build on target fedora-6-extras succeeded.
27599 (mimedefang): Build on target fedora-5-extras succeeded.

Building mimedefang for EPEL isn't possible yet as a build requirement package 
is missing - but checked in the update there, too.
