Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Updated libc-client packages that fix a buffer overflow issue are now

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red

mailbox name, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a server that
uses C-client to access mailboxes. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2933 to this issue.

All users of libc-client should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.
