leading to execution of arbitrary code.

<vulnerable range="lt">2004g</vulnerable>
uw-imap is the University of Washington's IMAP and POP server
Improper bounds checking of user supplied data while parsing IMAP
mailbox names can lead to overflowing the stack buffer.
<impact type="high">
Successful exploitation requires an authenticated IMAP user to
request a malformed mailbox name. This can lead to execution of
arbitrary code with the permissions of the IMAP server.
There are no known workarounds at this time.
All uw-imap users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-mail/uw-imap-2004g&quot;</code>
