<description>
<p>
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the argument
parsers of the 'partial' and 'fetch' commands of the Cyrus IMAP Server
(CAN-2004-1012, CAN-2004-1013). There are also buffer overflows in the
'imap magic plus' code that are vulnerable to exploitation as well
(CAN-2004-1011, CAN-2004-1015).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary
code with the rights of the user running the Cyrus IMAP Server.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Cyrus-IMAP Server users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-mail/cyrus-imapd-2.2.10&quot;</code>
</resolution>
