[slackware-security]  imapd (SSA:2005-310-06)

New imapd packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix (an alleged) security issue.  See the details
below for more information.  Also, new Pine packages are provided since
these are built together...  why not?  Might as well upgrade that too,
while I'm fixing the fake security problem.  :-)


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/imapd-4.64-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to imapd-4.64.
  A buffer overflow was reported in the mail_valid_net_parse_work function.
  However, this function in the c-client library does not appear to be called
  from anywhere in imapd.  iDefense states that the issue is of LOW risk to
  sites that allow users shell access, and LOW-MODERATE risk to other servers.
  I believe it's possible that it is of NIL risk if the function is indeed
  dead code to imapd, but draw your own conclusions...
  (* Security fix *)
