Reference: CONFIRM:
Reference: MLIST:[oss-security] 20080619 CVE request: php 5.2.6 ext/imap buffer overflows
Reference: URL:

php_imap.c in PHP 5.2.5, 5.2.6, 4.x, and other versions, uses obsolete
API calls that allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via a long IMAP request, which triggers an "rfc822.c
legacy routine buffer overflow" error message.
