PACKAGE   : exim
SUMMARY   : Remote buffer overflow vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-09-05 15:11:00
ID        : CLA-2003:735
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

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

DESCRIPTION
 Exim[1] is a popular email server (MTA).
 
 A remote heap buffer overflow vulnerability[2] has been reported[3]
 in the Exim server. Carefully constructed EHLO/HELO messages can
 cause a buffer overflow. By the time this message is processed, Exim
 is no longer running with administrator privileges. At this time,
 this vulnerability is believed to be difficult to exploit.
 
 Exim is not installed nor started by default on Conectiva Linux.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all Exim users upgrade their packages. After
 the upgrade, Exim will be automatically restarted if it was already
 running.
