Package        : emil
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : local/remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0152 CAN-2004-0153

Ulf Harnhammar discovered a number of vulnerabilities in emil, a
filter for converting Internet mail messages.  The vulnerabilities
fall into two categories:

 - CAN-2004-0152 - Buffer overflows in (1) the encode_mime function,
   (2) the encode_uuencode function, (3) the decode_uuencode
   function.  These bugs could allow a carefully crafted email message
   to cause the execution of arbitrary code supplied with the message
   when it is acted upon by emil.

 - CAN-2004-0153 - Format string bugs in statements which print
   various error messages.  The exploit potential of these bugs has
   not been established, and is probably configuration-dependent.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.0-beta9-11woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your emil package.
