3. Problem description:

XEmacs is a powerful, customizable, self-documenting, modeless text editor.

Max Vozeler discovered several format string vulnerabilities in the movemail utility of XEmacs. If a user connects to a malicious POP server, an attacker can execute arbitrary code as the user running xemacs. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0100 to this issue.

Users of XEmacs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system:
