Details

An updated Pine package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1
to fix a denial of service attack.

Pine is an email user agent.

The c-client IMAP client library, as used in Pine 4.44 contains an integer
overflow and integer signedness flaw. An attacker could create a malicious
IMAP server in such a way that it would cause Pine to crash. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CAN-2003-0297 to this issue.

Users of Pine are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
