Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:047
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : metamail
Date : February 22, 2006
Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Ulf Harnhammar discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the way
that metamail handles certain mail messages. An attacker could create
a carefully-crafted message that, when parsed via metamail, could
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
metamail.

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
