- imap-lib crashes in client library

The client part of the University of Washington IMAP implementation
is prone to a buffer overflow while parsing mailbox names. This
bug can probably be exploited by a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the affected
mail client. (CAN-2005-2933). The 'imapd' that is included in the
"imap" package itself is not affected by this problem.

This problem affects all SUSE Linux based products.

Trying to update imap-lib-2002d-61.i586.rpm for SuSE 9.0 tells me

Needs Dependency: linux-gate.so.1

I don't find any reference to "linux-gate.so" in ARCHIVES.gz for SuSE 9.0.
Am I missing sth?

cu,
Frank
