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.
