Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : libc-client
Version     : 2002e                      
Release     : 13                  
Summary     : C-client mail access routines for IMAP and POP protocols
Description :
C-client is a common API for accessing mailboxes. It is used internally by
the popular PINE mail reader, the University of Washington's IMAP server
and PHP.

Update Information:

The c-client library provides an API which allows
applications to access and manipulate remote mail boxes.

The library contains a bug in its mail_valid_net_parse()
function.  If an application allows untrusted input to be
supplied to this function, its stack may become corrupted. 
This update backports the fix from imap-2004g which resolves
this issue.
