Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security <oss-security@...ts.openwall.com> Subject: CVE Request -- Dovecot v1.2.11 -- DoS (excessive CPU use) by processing email with huge header Hi Steve, vendors, Dovecot upstream has released latest v1.2.11 version of Dovecot IMAP server:  http://www.dovecot.org/list/dovecot-news/2010-March/000152.html addressing one denial of service issue (from upstream announcement): "mbox users really should upgrade, because by sending a message with a huge header you could basically cause a DoS (this problem exists only with v1.2.x, not with v1.0 or v1.1)."
