1. Problem Description

  The qpop 2.53 does not check the mail header for invalid input.

  An attacker could send a mail with a malicously formated mail header
  to a person, that reveives it's mail via qpop 2.53, to execute code
  with the privileges of user 'mail' at the qpop server.

3. Solution

  Update the package from our FTP server.
