Debian Security Advisory DSA-058-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Wichert Akkerman June 10, 2001


Package : exim Problem type : remote printf format attack Debian-specific: no

Megyer Laszlo found a printf format bug in the exim mail transfer agent. The code that checks the header syntax of an email logs an error without protecting itself against printf format attacks.

This problem has been fixed in version 3.12-10.1. Since that code is not turned on by default a standard installation is not vulnerable, but we still recommend to upgrade your exim package.

wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato


Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
