<affected>
<package name="net-mail/qmailadmin" auto="yes" arch="*">

<background>
<p>

managing a qmail system with virtual domains.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
qmailAdmin fails to properly handle the "PATH_INFO" variable in
qmailadmin.c. The PATH_INFO is a standard CGI environment variable
filled with user supplied data.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending
qmailAdmin a maliciously crafted URL that could lead to the execution
of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running qmailAdmin.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All qmailAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-mail/qmailadmin-1.2.10&quot;</code>
</resolution>
