autorespond - buffer overflow



Debian Security Advisory

DSA-373-1 autorespond -- buffer overflow

Date Reported:
16 Aug 2003
Affected Packages:
autorespond
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CAN-2003-0654.
More information:

Christian Jaeger discovered a buffer overflow in autorespond, an email autoresponder used with qmail. This vulnerability could potentially be exploited by a remote attacker to gain the privileges of a user who has configured qmail to forward messages to autorespond. This vulnerability is currently not believed to be exploitable due to incidental limits on the length of the problematic input, but there may be situations in which these limits do not apply.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.2-2woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your autorespond package.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody)
