    Package        : cyrus-sasl-mit
    Vulnerability  : unsanitised input
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0884
    Debian Bug     : 275498
    
    A vulnerability has been discovered in the Cyrus implementation of the
    SASL library, the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method
    for adding authentication support to connection-based protocols.  The
    library honors the environment variable SASL_PATH blindly, which
    allows a local user to link against a malicious library to run
    arbitrary code with the privileges of a setuid or setgid application.
    
    The MIT version of the Cyrus implementation of the SASL library
    provides bindings against MIT GSSAPI and MIT Kerberos4.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.24-15woody3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libsasl packages.
