PACKAGE   : pine
SUMMARY   : Remote vulnerabilities
DATE      : 2003-09-12 10:15:00
ID        : CLA-2003:738
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 Pine is a mail and news text based client developed by the Washington
 University[1].
 
 This update fixes two pine remote vulnerabilities found by
 zen-parse[2]. Both vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote
 attackers through the sending of specially crafted messages that when
 opened by the user can trigger the execution of arbitrary code. The
 vulnerabilities are:
 
 1. Buffer overflow in the parsing of the message/external-body type
 attribute name/value pairs.
 
 2. Integer overflow in the rfc2231_get_param() function, which is
 used to parse e-mails headers.
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
 assigned the names CAN-2003-0720[3] and CAN-2003-0721[4] to these
 issues, respectively.


SOLUTION
 All pine users should upgrade.
