    Package        : up-imapproxy
    Vulnerability  : format string vulnerability
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2661
    
    Steve Kemp discovered two format string vulnerabilities in
    up-imapproxy, an IMAP protocol proxy, which may lead remote attackers
    to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.3-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.4-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imapproxy package.
