Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : libc-client
Version     : 2002e                      
Release     : 17                  
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.

- account for the /usr/share/ssl -> /etc/pki/tls move in the patch which
  sets the locations at compile-time (more of #165967)

* Wed Nov 23 2005 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 2002e-16
- rebuild

- rebuild

* Wed Nov 23 2005 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 2002e-13
- apply fix for CVE-2005-2933: buffer overflow (#171345)

* Wed Nov  9 2005 Tomas Mraz <tmraz at redhat.com> 2002e-12
- rebuilt against new openssl

* Sat Oct 15 2005 Florian La Roche <laroche at redhat.com>
- fix to rebuild at least, seems the way to specify the
  include dir is a bit broken
