Description

Georgi Guninski and David Bienvenu discovered that long Content-Type and RFC2047-encoded headers we vulnerable to heap overflows. By tricking the user into opening a specially crafted email, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2006-6506)

Various flaws have been reported that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with user privileges or bypass internal XSS protections by tricking the user into opening a malicious email containing JavaScript. Please note that JavaScript is disabled by default for emails, and it is not recommended to enable it. (CVE-2006-6497, CVE-2006-6498, CVE-2006-6499, CVE-2006-6501, CVE-2006-6502, CVE-2006-6503).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
