  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    A remote attacker could design a malicious IMAP server and entice
    someone to connect to it using IMAP Proxy, resulting in the execution
    of arbitrary code with the rights of the victim user.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    Only connect to trusted IMAP servers using IMAP Proxy.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All IMAP Proxy users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-mail/up-imapproxy-1.2.4&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
