Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-20 13:23:33 UTC
Evil Ninja Squirrel discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in balsa.

According to RedHat:
  A remote IMAP server can overflow a statically sized buffer on stack
  and possible execute arbitrary code with privilegies of user running
  Balsa with a long message name in response to FETCH command of IMAP
  protocol. ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/297581 )

Gnome, please advise.
Comment 2 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-20 15:58:58 UTC
I've bumped to balsa 2.3.20.  It seems to work in my minimal testing.  (No one in the gnome herd actually uses balsa a their mail client.)
Comment 3 Pierre-Yves Rofes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-20 16:50:47 UTC
