    Package        : horde and imp
    Problem type   : remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    imp as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 suffered from insufficient
    checking of user supplied data: the IMP webmail interface did not check
    the $from variable which contains the sender address for shell
    metacharacters. This could be used to run arbitrary commands on the
    server running imp.
    
    To fix this horde (the library imp uses) has been modified to sanitize
    $from, and imp has been patched to improve checking of user input.
    
    The updated versions are horde 1.2.1-0 and imp 2.2.1-0, and we strongly
    recommend you upgrade both packages immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
    - ---------------------------------
    
      The slink release did not contain horde and imp.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
    - ---------------------------------
    
      Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc
      architectures.
