MGASA-2021-0078 - Updated perl-Email-MIME and perl-Email-MIME-ContentType packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 10 Feb 2021
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2021-0078.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 7

Messages with too many tiny nested MIME parts can lead to memory exhaustion on
split(), resulting in denial of service (rhbz#1835353)

This update limits the number of nested MIME parts to 10 (by default), to avoid
a possible memory exhaustion issue with lots of tiny MIME parts.
