Date: Tue, 9 Sep 2008 14:43:51 +0200 From: Robert Buchholz <rbu@...too.org> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: ssmtp =2.62 unitialized memory disclosure Hi, Maurice van der Pot of Gentoo reported a bug in ssmtp 2.62: The from_format() function in ssmtp.c will call strdup() on an unitialized memory if the user's gecos is unset and "FromLineOverride" is disabled in the configuration. This might disclose memory contents by sending them off in the the "From:" field of an email or cause a (client) crash. We're handling this as bug 234391 [ https://bugs.gentoo.org/234391 ]. Patch: https://bugs.gentoo.org/attachment.cgi?id=165005 ssmtp 2.61 is not affected. If anyone needs a CVE identifier, please speak up. We will handle this low-impact issue without a GLSA.
