    Package        : exim
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0399 CAN-2004-0400
    Georgi Guninski discovered two stack-based buffer overflows.  They can
    not be exploited with the default configuration from the Debian
    system, though.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems that are fixed with this update:
        When "sender_verify = true" is configured in exim.conf a buffer
        overflow can happen during verification of the sender.  This
        problem is fixed in exim 4.
        When headers_check_syntax is configured in exim.conf a buffer
        overflow can happen during the header check.  This problem does
        also exist in exim 4.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.35-1woody3.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.36-11 for exim 3 and in version 4.33-1 for exim 4.
    We recommend that you upgrade your exim package.
