Description

New elm packages are available for Red Hat Linux 5.2, 6.2, 7 and 7.1. These packages fix a buffer overflow in the message-id handling.

Elm had a buffer overflow when handling very long message-ids. This overwrote other header fields, and could potentially cause more damage. Note that Red Hat Linux 7.1/Alpha shipped with this newer version.
