Package : exim4
CVE ID : CVE-2017-16943 CVE-2017-16944
Debian Bug : 882648 882671

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Exim, a mail transport
agent. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following issues:

CVE-2017-16943

A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in Exim's routines
responsible for parsing mail headers. A remote attacker can take
advantage of this flaw to cause Exim to crash, resulting in a denial
of service, or potentially for remote code execution.

CVE-2017-16944

It was discovered that Exim does not properly handle BDAT data
headers allowing a remote attacker to cause Exim to crash, resulting
in a denial of service.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.89-2+deb9u2. Default installations disable advertising the
ESMTP CHUNKING extension and are not affected by these issues.

We recommend that you upgrade your exim4 packages.
