Synopsis
========

A vulnerability has been discovered in Courier-IMAP allowing for remote
code execution with root privileges.

Background
==========

Courier-IMAP is an IMAP server which is part of the Courier mail
system. It provides access only to maildirs.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                /  Vulnerable  /                Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-mail/courier-imap     < 4.0.6-r2                  >= 4.0.6-r2

Description
===========

CJ Kucera has discovered that some Courier-IMAP scripts don't properly
handle the XMAILDIR variable, allowing for shell command injection.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send specially crafted login credentials to a
Courier-IMAP server instance, possibly leading to remote code execution
with root privileges.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Courier-IMAP users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/courier-imap-4.0.6-r2"

Availability
============

This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at
the Gentoo Security Website:
