Since I'm using Mozilla MailNews, I didn't get infected and just hit delete. When I was moving my trash from my IMAP server to my hard drive, it kept stopping at that one email with a virus. I would have to restart the whole Mozilla (MailNews and whatever else I had open, eg the Browser). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to an IMAP folder (this _could_ affect other protocols, but I haven't tested it). 2. Try to move a few messages with a large message selected as well (you can also select a single message). I had 213K, but it might be able to be smaller. Actual Results: Mozilla stopped moving messages at the large message. Expected Results: Mozilla should have kept moving messages.
Most likely the virus message has an embedded null, and it has nothing to do with the size of the message. What IMAP server are you using? IMAP servers are not supposed to send embedded nulls according to the IMAP RFC but some versions of some servers do.

I am using the Outblaze (www.outblaze.com) IMAP server through Linuxmail (www.linuxmail.org).

I can send the virus over if you want ;-). Don't worry, it doens't execute unless you run MS Outlook (and I assume you don't).
Here's what you can do. Generate an imap protocol log by following these instructions: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap You want to generate a log of selecting the virus message and trying to copy it to a local folder and then attach the log to this bug or e-mail it to me. The embedded null is most likely in the message body. Sending me the message won't help because our IMAP server will not allow the embedded null, since it's illegal. I'd like to make our code more tolerant of embedded nulls, at least in the message body, but without a server that will generate them, it's hard to test :-)
Aarg!! I deleted the message, sorry :-(. Is there any file that might still have it. I haven't restarted Mozilla yet.
If you deleted it from your inbox, it might still be in your inbox, but just with the deleted flag set. What you can do is start up Mozilla, and switch your imap server settings to "when I delete messages, mark them as deleted", instead of "move them to the trash". Then, click on your inbox, and see if the message is still there. However, if you have "expunge inbox on exit", it might already be gone. If it's still there but with a big red x, you can "undelete" it by just pressing delete again.
Created attachment 126301 [details] Log of trying to move message from local to IMAP Thank you! I got the message. Here is a log of trying to move it from local to the inbox on my IMAP server. It failed. It also failed trying to move from Trash on IMAP to local, but suceeded on moving from IMAP Inbox to local trash. Weird.
I'll be gone for 3 days FYI. No email.
before you go, can you attach a log of just reading the message in your imap inbox? thx!
Back. There is a log of reading it and moving it up (and there was one before, too, though)
OK, the log that's attached doesn't show the reading of a message (this could be because you have the INBOX configured for offline use, and we've already downloaded the message body). But it's more likely that it's just a log of moving a message from a local folder to an imap folder. What I was hoping to see was a log of that message getting selected in an imap folder, so I can see the contents of the message. Also, could you try a 1.5 trunk build from yesterday or today? I fixed our handling of IMAP syntax errors (e.g., the server returns the message incorrectly because of embedded nulls in the message).
Created attachment 126582 [details] Log of selecting the message Here is selecting the message on the IMAP server with 1.4 rc2. I'm on dialup (38KBps), so I'll download todays build and send in a log.
Attachment #126301 - Attachment is obsolete: true
Created attachment 126590 [details] Log message of selecting message w/ 1.5 trunk Here is the log generated by selecting the message with 1.5 trunk (build 2003062608). OK. So it also got my mail ;-). Ignore the first section...
OK, one more try (those logs look fine so I can't see the problem from them :-( ) Can you attach a log where you do the following: 1. Select the problem message. 2. Move it to a local folder. I'm not sure it'll show anything different, but since that was the original problem scenario, it's worth a try. Thx!
Created attachment 126592 [details] Selecting and moving message This is the log of selecting and moving the message. Once with it being the only one being moved, the other time with another message selected. It didn't hang this time. The reason I tried moving another message is because it caused the move to fail. Using 2003062608. Maybe you fixed it?
The new log is zipped up so I can upload it. Sorry :-(. I wish I had some server space with my ISP...
Created attachment 126597 [details] Moving of two messages failing OK. Here is a log using 2003062608. I selected and attempted to move (to a local folder) two messages. It didn't work.
OK, thx, that last log is interesting. We're trying to read two messages and nothing's coming back from the server, because those two messages don't exist in the folder. In fact, the Trash is really empty - all the messages in it are deleted, according to the server. I'm not sure why we're letting you select them in the UI in the first place.
Weird. From the web interface of my mail system, they don't show up. Weird.
Created attachment 126624 [details] Attachment not showing w/ virus This is another log of trying to view a message with 2003062608. It shows up, but not the attachment. I can see the message. Any ideas?
are you accessing your inbox with web mail at the same time as you access it with Mozilla? That can cause problems, though it still wouldn't explain what I see in the log.
No, I am not. I am not accessing the mail interface when I am connected to the server via Mail. It was when I was booted into Linux that I checked the web mail interface.
This looks like it might be a problem with the server - we ask for the body structure of the message, and the server starts complaining and returning untagged OK responses. Those should be ignored by the parser, I think, but it is odd. 16 UID fetch 1056724485 (BODYSTRUCTURE) -734181[23c3580]: ReadNextLine [stream=23c31d8 nb=0 needmore=1] -734181[23c3580]: ReadNextLine [stream=23c31d8 nb=79 needmore=0] -734181[23c3580]: 23c2650:linuxmail.outblaze.com:S-INBOX:CreateNewLineFromSocket: * OK [PARSE] Must use comma to separate addresses: mailerautomat recipient <> -734181[23c3580]: ReadNextLine [stream=23c31d8 nb=32 needmore=0] -734181[23c3580]: 23c2650:linuxmail.outblaze.com:S-INBOX:CreateNewLineFromSocket: * OK [PARSE] Missing parameter -734181[23c3580]: ReadNextLine [stream=23c31d8 nb=265 needmore=0] -734181[23c3580]: 23c2650:linuxmail.outblaze.com:S-INBOX:CreateNewLineFromSocket: * 50 FETCH (UID 1056724485 BODYSTRUCTURE (("TEXT" "HTML" ("CHARSET" "US-ASCII") NIL NIL "QUOTED-PRINTABLE" 203 6 NIL NIL NIL)("AUDIO" "X-WAV" ("NAME" "XfbKnd.exe") "<uvbmrsh>" NIL "BASE64" 212994 NIL NIL NIL) "ALTERNATIVE" ("BOUNDARY" "UNfZZuUqxbjNwhY") NIL NIL)) -734181[23c3580]: ReadNextLine [stream=23c31d8 nb=27 needmore=0] -734181[23c3580]: 23c2650:linuxmail.outblaze.com:S-INBOX:CreateNewLineFromSocket: 16 OK UID FETCH completed
David, I think reporter Taj is gone. Should the "null" issue be followed up on?
QA Contact: grylchan → networking.imap
No, I think that's handled in other bugs. It looks like this really was a server issue.
