<description>
<p>
When GNU Mailutils is built with the "mysql" or "postgres" USE
flag, the sql_escape_string function of the authentication module fails
to properly escape the "\" character, rendering it vulnerable to a SQL
command injection.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A malicious remote user could exploit this vulnerability to inject
SQL commands to the underlying database.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All GNU Mailutils users should upgrade to the latest available
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-mail/mailutils-0.6-r1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
